Death and Dignity: A Case of Individualized Decision Making
Quill, Timothy E.
New England Journal of Medicine. 1991 Mar 7; 324(10): 691-694.
In a Sounding Board essay, a physician recounts his experience with an adult patient diagnosed with acute myelomonocytic leukemia. After the patient refused chemotherapy that offered a 25% chance of a long-term cure, she asked the physician's help in planning suicide. Quill, who describes himself as a long-time advocate of active, informed patient choice of treatment and nontreatment, and of a patient's right to die with as much control and dignity as possible, dicusses his indirect role in his patient's death.
