ABSTRACT
No area of care provides more ethical problems for nurses than care at the end of life. This applies as much to the care of newborns as to the elderly. In end-of-life decisions, nurses and physicians are often poles apart. The three authors who address the care of the dying in this issue examine different aspects of the debate. Merja Kuuppelomäki has asked patients, doctors and nurses about their experiences; their descriptions make for some uncomfortable reading. Ann-Marie Begley has constructed a dialogue between two nurses and a doctor concerning the moral position of euthanasia. Arie van der Arend gives a detailed statement of the position of euthanasia in The Netherlands. Each article brings more light to the debate, yet the problem persists.
