Medical staff frequently face ethically difficult situations when patients with severe dysphagia request oral intake. The most important thing to assist them with better ethical decision-making is a discussion based on medically accurate facts. Although medical staff suffer from ethical dilemmas, clinical ethics conferences based on the four principles of clinical ethics are recommended. The process leading to better ethical clinical decision-making is important.
