The purpose of this guide is to serve as a useful tool for
informing the public and training professionals. It is
aimed at health professionals, patients, their families and
all those who face problematic decisions with regard to
medical treatment in end-of-life situations, and provides
help for the development of practices. The guide is also
a source of material for any discussion held within our
societies on the decision-making process regarding
medical treatment in end-of-life situations in that it
proposes benchmarks relating both to the practices
and the principles that can be applied in this context.
