Healthcare Rationing at the End of Life Debate

As a gerontological nurse practitioner I often see dollars spent that actually conflict with some of the ethical principles that we strive to uphold when caring for the elderly (like nonmaleficence). When I was driving back from the Twin Cities a couple of weeks ago I listened to this debate which kept my attention from St. Cloud to Alexandria. I really felt like nursing should have been represented on the panel.
