Abstract

As the world’s population ages, the number of people requiring end of life care will increase raising questions about what constitutes quality and effective of end of life care. End of life care is defined here as “the part of palliative care that is directed towards the care of persons who are nearing end of life” it focuses on “maintaining quality of life while offering services for legal matters” (Krau 2016 p. x). Importantly, end of life care aims to allow people to die with dignity
