Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

Physician-assisted suicide (PAS) is increasing in the health professions community and has political relevance and ethical considerations. OTs play a holistic role in patients finding meaning and joy in their lives. To do this job to an OT’s best ability, it is important to have an understanding of the process of PAS and the views of other OTs on this topic. This was a critically needed research study due to the lack of data and research on PAS from an OT's view.
