The experience of providing end‐of‐life care at home

Categories: Featured and Research.

End‐of‐life care is now a major issue in Japan as a result of the rapidly aging population; hence, the need for fostering family physicians to be engaged in end‐of‐life care at home is increasing. Studies in the United States and the United Kingdom have shown that physicians feel emotional and moral distress in end‐of‐life care, and that they develop detachment and dehumanizing attitudes toward patients as a coping mechanism. However, few studies have explored the emotional experiences that family physicians have during home‐based end‐of‐life care.
