‘The CMT&PCA’s idea of palliation is very narrow indeed; it was written specifically to cover pain relief for those suffering in the terminal phase of a terminal illness, and has relevance only for palliative care physicians.’

‘The CMT&PCA’s idea of palliation is very narrow indeed; it was written specifically to cover pain relief for those suffering in the terminal phase of a terminal illness, and has relevance only for palliative care physicians.’

Do you agree with this statement?

The answer :

No. This is because the CMT & PCA law had three objectives as shown in section 3. The first was to amend the consent to treatment law where people of or over 16 years of age would consent on their own to undergo medical treatment and in case of emergency medical treatment to be provided without consent. The other was to give guidelines on how medical treatment would be provided to people with impaired decision-making and then the palliative care medical treatment (s3 (a) (b) (c)).
