‘Death With Dignity’ Difficult For Hospice Workers in Pastoral Care

The article, “Death With Dignity’ Difficult For Hospice Workers”, by Kristian Foden-Vencil states

“Workers who provide hospice care to the dying are struggling with physician-assisted death laws, according to a new study out of Oregon State University.”

American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight:
Many hospice care givers have a very different view on assisted suicide than other health care providers.  The pastoral care nature of hospice preaches the gift of life and caring for those in the latter years rather than killing.  This seems like a logical conclusion then that most pastoral care professionals would find the idea to be morally wrong. Death With Dignity is an important step in the dying process.
