A survey was conducted among family doctors to determine how often they were requested to administer euthanasia or assist in suicide, & how often they actually applied these procedures. Respondents completed an anonymous questionnaire. Results show that 48% have never engaged in euthanasia or assisted suicide & that an average of 40% of all such requests are complied with. It is concluded that far fewer family doctors are involved with euthanasia & assisted suicide than was previously supposed.
