(p.257) 8 Conclusions
When Treatment Fails

David J. Bearison

Oxford University Press

This chapter concludes that the most compelling part of the narratives found in the preceding chapters is the diverse ways in which they are able to capture the changes of end-of-life issues in pediatrics. It determines that, in most of the narratives, it is difficult to recognize the discipline that is being voiced in terms of the issues being raised and the ways of speaking about them. The chapter also discusses withdrawing care and ethical concerns.

Keywords:   narratives, end of life, pediatrics, withdrawing care, ethical concerns
