To the Editor: We support the conclusions reached by Parker and colleagues in their study on the attitudes of Australian medical practitioners to end-of-life decisions.1 They recommend the inclusion of decision-making theory and practice within medical ethics curricula, and highlight the need “to facilitate more discussion between specialties about medical decisions at the end of life”.1
