First Sentence
Treatment which achieves its physiological aim may fail to provide a net benefit to the patient because it is unable to achieve a level of recovery which justifies the corresponding burdens of the treatment. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Palliative care perspective 6 Jun 2011
By Wendy Muircroft - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book represents a seminal text on the ethical and legal ramifications on withholding and withdrawing life-prolonging treatment within UK-style medical and legal practices. The second edition of the text incorporates relevant changes in practice in light the Human Rights Act, and implications of withdrawing treatment in the context of medical futility in all types of patients. I would recommend this text for all professionals involved in end of life care.
