Title False dichotomy versus genuine choice the argument over physician-assisted dying
Date 2004
Description Despite a growing consensus that palliative care should be a core part of the treatment offered to all severely ill patients who potentially face death,1 challenging questions remain. How broad a choice should patients have in guiding the course of their own dying? What limitations should be placed on the physician's obligation to address patients' suffering? Physician-assisted death (also called physician-assisted suicide or physician aid in dying) has long been the focal point of ethical and political debate-a divisive, hot button issue in a domain in which there is otherwise considerable agreement.
