Avustettu potilaan itsemurha ja eutanasia

Translated title of the contribution: Euthanasia and assisted suicide of a patient

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


In the article the complex questions are being discussed of whether and when a person may assist the suicide of another person and how this matter should be understood when the person is a patient. Killing on demand is punishable according to Finnish law but assisting suicide is not. In practical life the matters are much more nuanced than that, the study shows.
