Summary of "Attitudes of Physicians Towards Different Types of Euthanasia in Kuwait."

Although in recent years the world has witnessed great advances in the medical field, much ambiguity still surrounds the issue of euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide, with increasingly favorable attitudes amongst physicians around the world. In our study, we aimed to assess the attitudes of physicians in Kuwait towards different types of euthanasia, and to examine whether physicians' frequent encounters with terminally-ill patients were associated with their approval.
