  1. Living to the Bitter End? A Personalist Approach to Euthanasia in Persons with Severe Dementia.Jan de Lepeleire & Chris Gastmans - 2010 - Bioethics 24 (2):78-86.

The recommendations by several authors to improve the diagnosis of dementia by general practitioners are important, but insufficient. It is argued that perhaps the disease concept in itself is a cause of confusion for clinicians. Primary care physicians need an adapted procedure, gradually leading to the final diagnosis of dementia. It has to be a stepwise labelling strategy, using global descriptions and non-disease specific labels in the beginning, ending up (...)
