This chapter examines patient choice and consent and its current status in clinical decision-making in end of life care. The findings indicate that the idea of patient choice can exist comfortably in the consensus view of health care and a stress on choice is simply a stress on the patient's right to choose between treatment options offered in the process of joint decision-making. This chapter also suggests the possibility of providing an end of life care service run on consumerist lines.
