|Title:||No Choice without Care: Palliative Care as a Relational Matter, the Case of Ireland||Authors:||Lolich, Luciana
|Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/9562||Date:||1-Jan-2017||Abstract:||In recent years, choice and autonomy have been prioritized as key quality indicators in palliative care services. This article examines current palliative care discourses with respect to patient choice. While recognizing the importance of personal autonomy, using evidence from Ireland, this article explores how a discourse on choice can contribute to inequalities in palliative care because it fails to take account of pre-existing structural inequalities, human relationality, and bodily decline. This article proposes a relational approach to care that takes account not only of the relational lives in those in need of care but also of their careers.||Funding Details:||Health Research Board||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Penn State University Press||Journal:||Soundings||Volume:||100||Issue:||4||Start page:||353||End page:||374||Copyright (published version):||2017 The Pennsylvania State University||Keywords:||Palliative care; Unpaid caregivers; Cultural values; Relationality||DOI:||10.5325/soundings.100.4.0353||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
