In the United States, few studies have examined important variables in physician attitudes toward the practice of euthanasia, such as the patient's underlying disease, mental capacity, and age, and the physician's specialty and religion.
We administered a casebased survey to analyze the impact of such specific variables on physician attitudes toward the practice.
A four-section survey solicited (1) physicianresponses to three hypothetical cases in which patients requested euthanasia; (2) physicians'general opinions about euthanasia and how its legalization might affect them personally and professionally; and (3) demographic information.
