Code of Practice

The Code of Practice outlines the issues that the committees regard as relevant in performing their statutory task, i.e. the review of notifications of termination of life on request and assisted suicide.

Though the Code is mainly important for physicians performing euthanasia and independent physicians, it also contains useful information for patients and other interested parties. The RTEs hope that it will also make a positive contribution to an informed public debate on freedom of choice at the end of life.
