With euthanasia being such a divisive issue in Australia, and South Australia debating new Euthanasia legislation, we sometimes forget that at the very crux of this issue are suffering patients – real people with real pain.
Those on the front line of legally relieving the pain for these patients
are the doctors and nurses in palliative care units.
Is this pain relief blurring the lines between patient care and euthanasia? Or is it just ensuring the final stages of a patient’s life are as comfortable as possible?
To discuss this, Tim Brunero spoke to Emeritus Professor Eric Cassell, whose field of medicine has come from such institutions as Cornell University, McGill University, and the New York Presbyterian Hospital.
