The patient, Tyler Morton, was diagnosed with motor neuron disease (MND) specifically amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ALS is a disease that affects the motor system and leads to muscle weakness and wasting. The disease spreads to different parts of the body including the respiratory muscles. A decline in respiratory muscles subsequently leads to death. The survivability of the disease is around 2 to 5 years after the onset (Masrori & Van Damme, 2020). Since there is no cure for ALS, palliative care is the most relevant form of intervention for patients with the condition (Oliver, 2019). This paper critiques the care provided to Tyler Morton by comparing the care provided to the patient with a Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG).Continue reading
