    This article presents the attitudes of nurses towards three issues concerning their role in euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide. A questionnaire survey was conducted with 1509 nurses who were employed in hospitals, home care organizations and nursing homes.

    Autonomy in Stroke Rehabilitation: the perceptions of care providers in nursing homes.Ireen M. Proot, Huda Huijer Abu-Saad, Gijs Gj van Oorsouw & Jos Jam Stevens - 2002 - Nursing Ethics 9 (1):36-50.
    Twenty-seven health care providers from three nursing homes were interviewed about the autonomy of stroke patients in rehabilitation wards. Data were analysed using the grounded theory method for concept development recommended by Strauss and Corbin.

Teamwork (...)
