Conflicts of Conscience: Hospice and Assisted Suicide
Campbell, Courtney S.
Hastings Center Report. 1995 May-Jun; 25(3): 36-43.

In the wake of Measure 16, Oregon hospice programs must develop practical policies to balance traditional commitments not to hasten death and not to abandon patients with dying patients' legal right to request lethal prescriptions....The moral fallout of Measure 16 involved a collapse of the shared value framework that has guided hospice for the last two decades.
