NURSING ETHICS – LECTURE 10
I – Introduction
The last several weeks we have been using theoretical frameworks to
examine particular concepts and issues that arise in healthcare.

implications

II – Euthanasia Revisited
Euthanasia is a kind ofmercy killing.
Euthanasia: the killing of one person by another for beneficent
reasons, or for reasons which will promote the good of the person
being killed or some other set of persons.
Euthanasia, weve seen, is an important ethical issue that arises in the
provision of healthcare.
Are they any situations in which a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare
practitioner can perform euthanasia on a patient?

III – Euthanasia: Ethical Considerations
As we have seen, a variety of considerations are relevant to
determining whether euthanasia is ever morally justified.
These include: (1) the right to life, (2) slippery slope, (3) personal
suffering, and (4) the public good.
