Attitudes on euthanasia and medical advance directives: results of a survey by questionnaire among 727 physicians



DMW Deutsche Medizinische Wochenschrift 130(6): 261-265



Background: With regard to medical decisions and measures at the end of life, the values and attitudes of those concerned are crucial. However, they have hardly been taken into account so far in German empirical studies on euthanasia and medical advance directives. Method: Between October 2003 and May 2004, a mail survey of a representative group of internists, anaesthetists and general practitioners from Bavaria, Westphalia-Lippe and Thuringia was conducted.
