Clinical ethics in assisting euthanasia: Avoiding malpractice in drug application

Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 17 (4):439-443 (1992)
The debate on the ethical permissibility of euthanasia in medicine has a corollary in the ethical application of drugs. The overall moral limits of medical treatment apply evenly to the moral acceptability of the pharmacological aspect of the act of euthanasia. The pharmacological aspect of the act is of ethical importance not only for the person requesting an active ending of his or her life, but also for the grieving family. Keywords: effectivity, ideal euthanaticum, patient's/family's interest, pharmacology of euthanasia, routes of application CiteULike Connotea What's this?
