    I would add to Dr. Rushton’s comment in answer to Q1 not only aggressive technology but aggressive therapies. How can we as nurses better ensure that patients at end of life don’t suffer due to futile interventions?

  2. I think all of the factors you mention contribute to our silence. Increasingly health care environments have become riddled with fear and betrayal. It is time for us to consider what an ethical practice environment would entail and how we can shift from victimization to empowerment and from fear to courageous action. We need to move from talking about our values to living them! — Cynda Rushton
