What is it about?

Euthanasia is legal in Belgium. This is not only the case for patients who have unbearable suffering due to a terminal condition but as well for patients with a non-terminal condition such as mental suffering. This study deals with the attitudes, role and skills of nursing students in euthanasia because of unbearable mental suffering.
