Best Interests and Shared Decision-making at the End of Life

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference Abstract

Abstract

This paper explores how the philosophical approaches to shared decision making and best interests manifest in English law, using the lens of two prominent cases. Both cases concern whether the best interests of a person in minimally conscious state are served by the fatal withdrawal of artificial nutrition and hydration.
