Nurses are at the bedside during the dying process; they spend  entire shifts with patients and families; they develop trusting  relationships; and they are competent to assess patient and family  needs. Nurses gain a unique perspective that allows them to become aware  when a patient is not responding to treatment. This perspective places  nurses in a position to facilitate end-of-life decision making. (Adams,  Bailey. Anderson, & Docherty, 2011, para. 4)
