Write a 10 pages paper on end-of-life issues in home health nursing. Ethical issues and problems abound in the home type of care. In dealing with these issues, four main principles pertaining to health ethics may arise. These principles include patient autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence, and justice. These principles may find application in various issues including quality of life, quality of care, pain management, sedation, and similar ethical dilemmas. This paper shall present an analysis and synthesis of the current literature and resources which pertain to the ethical issues in end-of-life care in the home-based setting. Support or rationale shall also be provided for this paper’s claims, decisions, or actions. The strengths, gaps, and limitations of this literature shall also be presented in aid of critical assessment. With this paper, a thorough and evidence-based assessment of the issue can hopefully be achieved.

End-of-life care, also known as palliative care is the type of care which mostly focuses on providing comfort to the patient who is already in the last days of his life. Patients under palliative care mostly suffer from advanced or progressive illness and often have months or even just days to live.
