Summary
To decrease the suffering of terminally ill patients, some doctors routinely prescribe strong painkillers-medications that, in effect, actually hasten the patient's death. What distinguishes such treatment from physician-assisted suicide? This program discusses legislative initiatives designed to protect patients from "disguised euthanasia"-and addresses the volatile question of whether such laws are a threat to the professional judgment of doctors. Experts include Professor David Orenlicher, former counsel to the AMA; Dr. Zeke Emmanuel, of the NIH's Department of Clinical Bioethics; and Yale University's Dr. Sherwin Nuland, author of How We Die.
