dc.description.abstract"This is a complex and tragic case which demonstrates very clearly that the situation constituted a true ethical dilemma. There is no room for negotiating around the issues or for turning them into technical problems; the case makes it clear that whatever decisions are made, there will be compromise of moral principles. The main concern is that of the patient’s best interests. In Andrew’s case, it is more difficult to arrive at an ethical position on the role of the family in deciding what would be in his best interests than it is in cases of withholding or withdrawal of treatment. This is in part because the family is involved in the care at home, care which is becoming increasingly difficult and ultimately impossible. Also the option of terminal sedation is not a straightforward route as it contravenes Andrew’s wish to remain lucid"
