With the growth of palliative care services, interest in moral issues also seems to be growing. However, we need to know which moral issues are specific to palliative care. The first step in answering this is to consider the moral concerns raised and discussed by the palliative care community itself. This article presents a bibliographical analysis of moral problems, first by selecting the problems identified as moral problems in the leading palliative care journals, and then by classifying these into different types.
