Physician-assisted suicide. Finding common ground.
McGough P, Back AL, Colley J. Physician-assisted suicide. Finding common ground. Western Journal of Medicine. 1997 Jun 1; 166(6):394-7.
In Washington state, practicing physicians have been forced to confront the emotional, complex issue of physician-assisted suicide sooner than physicians elsewhere in the US. The Washington State Medical Association has struggled at length with the issue and ultimately delineated a policy on safeguards for physician-assisted suicide. The Washington experience may prove instructive to other professional physician organizations even before the US Supreme Court rules on the issue.
