Case Study on Death and Dying
The practice of health care providers at all levels brings you into contact with people from a variety of
faiths. This calls for knowledge and understanding of a diversity of faith expressions; for the purpose of
this course, the focus will be on the Christian worldview.
Based on “Case Study: End of Life Decisions,” the Christian worldview, and the worldview questions
presented in the required topic study materials you will complete an ethical analysis of George’s situation
and his decision from the perspective of the Christian worldview.
Provide a 1,500-2,000-word ethical analysis while answering the following questions:
1. How would George interpret his suffering in light of the Christian narrative, with an emphasis on the
fallenness of the world?
2. How would George interpret his suffering in light of the Christian narrative, with an emphasis on the
hope of resurrection?
3. As George contemplates life with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), how would the Christian
worldview inform his view about the value of his life as a person?
4. What sorts of values and considerations would the Christian worldview focus on in deliberating about
whether or not George should opt for euthanasia?
5. Based on the values and considerations above, what options would be morally justified in the Christian
worldview for George and why?
6. Based on your worldview, what decision would you make if you were in George’s situation?
Remember to support your responses with the topic study materials.
