Abstract

This article offers a framework for examination and overview of Oregon's Death with Dignity Act after ifs first year of implementation. This law became public policy on October 27, 1997, when all legal barriers were lifted. The law allows a terminally ill person to request a prescription to end life if she or he qualifies under the law's requirements. According to records, 23 Oregonians have received such a prescription, and 15 have used it. Theeffect of physician-assisted suicide (PAS) on clients and families, professional health care providers and agencies, and society and culture is explored through two questions: (1) What is known about PAS? and (2) What needs discovery and exploration The reality of this end-of-life option has forever changed cave of terminally ill individuals, and social workers may benefit from the Oregon experience.
