Question 2 of 35

Fraser Health Authority offers Medical Assistance in Dying referrals. What are your thoughts on this?

The idea of choosing to end one's life is a very touchy subject for some people. Fraser Health Authority's Medical Assistance in Dying refers to a doctor or nurse practitioner helping a person, at their request, to end their life. The person must want to voluntarily and intentionally end their life. As a note of reference, simply wanting to end one's life is not the only criteria for a referral. There is an in-depth interview, psychological testing, and terminal diagnosis requirement. The interviewer is asking what your thoughts are. It's important to remember that when someone asks your thoughts, share them, but also be respectful. Everyone does not have the same views, especially with regard to end of life choices.

      1st Answer Example

      "I have to say that there was a time when I would have emphatically said 'no' to any suggestion of purposefully ending one's life. However, after working hospice for a short time and seeing people at the end of their lives, I am more open to the idea. I think very strict criteria should be in place and an understanding that this is not an option for someone who is just 'tired of living.' My opinion would probably be frowned upon by many of my friends or co-workers, but having seen a side to terminally illness that they have not makes me feel more empathy toward those thinking of making this decision."

      2nd Answer Example

      "I don't suppose anyone has ever asked my opinion about medically assisted dying. I actually feel torn about the concept. I was reared in a strict Christian home and that upbringing tells me that no man should end his own life. On the other hand, having worked in the healthcare industry for a number of years, I have seen many people in their last days. I feel like a decision of this magnitude should be carefully thought about and that a patient should be of sound mind enough to make this decision without interference from anyone else."
