Abstract
This thesis, which is entirely made up of qualitative research, investigates the medical and physician side of end-of-life (EoL) care and palliative care. First, we will discuss care transition dynamics with patients with chronic-progressive diseases from the advanced phase until death: how the life-preserving/palliative care continuum unfolds and what the specialists’/ general practitioners’ (GPs’) respective contribution herein is. Second, we will discuss how GPs deal with the dilemma of preserving life versus accepting the approaching death in home palliative care and how they deal with legal euthanasia and palliative sedation in this setting.
