Abstract

There are many issues surrounding the end of life. One of the most controversial is physician-assisted suicide. Because nursing is intimately involved with care of patients at the end of life in a variety of settings, it is incumbent upon nurses to be well informed on this issue. This article will examine the ethical, social, legal, political, and economic impact of physician-assisted suicide.
