Abstract

Most research on physician-assisted dying (PAD) in the Netherlands focuses on general practitioners (GPs). Less is known about the perspectives of other professionals. We performed narrative interviews with 10 professionals other than GPs to explore their perspectives on PAD in primary care. The results provide insight into PAD as an enacted practice involving many different actors, considerations, and expectations and into the intertwinement between PAD and palliative sedation. The study shows how a multidisciplinary perspective to PAD provides new avenues for practice, research, and ethics. It poses the question whether PAD can and should be considered merely a physicians’ concern.
