PhD opportunity: bioethical and legal ramifications of end of life decisions

The following PhD advertised by Birmingham Law School may be of interest to our readers:

Bioethical and legal ramifications of end of life decisions

Bioethical and legal dilemmas, which are everywhere, are even more clear in patient care at the end of life, as decisions about supporting or ending life interventions are made daily. Decisions are affected by the culture, values, and religion of those who have to make those decisions, and this becomes even more difficult when a clash exists between those giving the care and those receiving it.
