Abstract Share this page

"In New Zealand, for example, the overwhelming majority of physicians who admitted (illegally) helping their patients to die had access to palliative care services (Mitchell & Owens, 2004; Malpas et al., 2015); clearly the availability of such services is not seen as meeting the needs of every terminally ill patient. Nor does the provision of legally accepted assistance in dying impair the development of palliative care; in the Netherlands and Belgium, for example, there has been a substantial increase in the availability of palliative care services in the years during which euthanasia has been available (Bernheim et al., 2014b; Bernheim, Chambaere, Theuns, & Deliens, 2014a). Evidence from both Oregon and Washington states show that the majority of individuals who used the Death With Dignity Act to end their lives were enrolled in hospice or palliative care (Washington State Department of Health, 2013; Oregon Government, 2014 ).
