Moral Distress from “Forced Futile Care”

Ontario is what I refer to as a “red light” jurisdiction.  Clinicians always need consent to stop life-sustaining treatment, even if they are confident it is medically and ethically inappropriate and outside the standard of care.

One Canadian physician blogger provides a first person perspective for why this is a problem for her professionally and personally.
