Introduction Chapter 1: An Alternative Defense of Physician-Assisted Suicide Chapter 2: Ready to Die—An Existential Dilemma Chapter 3: Using and Abusing the Doctrine of Double Effect Chapter 4: On Suicide, Acceptance, and Control Chapter 5: Bones, Sinews, and the Self Chapter 6: Pedagogy and the Limits of Ethics Bibliography
In this book, James Dunson explores end-of-life ethics including physician-assisted suicide (PAS) and continuous sedation until death. He argues that ethical debates currently ignore the experience of the dying patient in an effort to focus on policy creation, and proposes that the dying experience should instead be prioritized and used to inform policy development. The author makes the case that PAS should be recognized as a legally and morally permissible option for a very particular kind of patient: terminally ill with fewer than six months to live and capable of conscious consent. Since focusing on the patient's experience of this end-of-life dilemma transforms some of the basic concepts we use to engage in the PAS debate, the argument has implications for patient care and the training of medical professionals.
