A 4-section survey solicited Wisconsin physician responses to: 1) 3 hypothetical cases in which patients request euthanasia; 2) general opinions about euthanasia & its legalization; & 3) demographic information. Results indicated that physicians felt more comfortable with requests from nondecisional, nonterminal patients who had left advance directives. Physician specialty & religion also correlated with responses to the hypothetical cases & attitudes toward euthanasia. (26 refs.)
