I believe that healthcare professionals can greatly influence a patients choice and for that reason we need to be cognisant of that ''power'' that we hold and not let our own values, whether we are for or against this ruling, influence how we support patients who will choose this route. This decision will ultimately be the one of the patient and I believe it needs to be that way. Part of ''caring'' for a patient involves respecting their decisions and rights and I am sure that NB RNs will competently and professionally support patients in their choices. Determining competency should not be any different than the requirements are at the present time. What is critical is a full explanation of the situation with the client AND their family with some opportunity for discussion.
