Bedside nurses in the critical care setting deal with death on a regular basis. Historically, end-of-life decision making has been addressed by physicians with the family and patient, yet nurses may be a better resource for families during the decision-making process. The purpose of this article was to provide a brief review of literature surrounding end-of-life decision making. As patient advocates, nurses should be more actively involved with facilitating the end-of-life decision-making process for critically ill patients and their families.
