People who are homeless are known to have high rates of morbidity and mortality. Yet their attitudes, values, and desires regarding end-of-life care have not been studied. This article reports on the findings from interviews with groups of homeless individuals in the Twin Cities performed by University of Minnesota researchers. It explores the implications of homelessness on two commonly discussed ethical principles-autonomy and justice.
