Short Description:

This research project aims to clarify the involvement of nurses in the process of euthanasia. The empirical-ethical component aims to focus on the actual involvement of Flemish nurses in the euthanasia process. Founded on in-depth interviews and focus groups with nurses, the initial study will attempt to implement a process of inductive thematic analysis to come to a nuanced pic- ture of the way in which and the extent to which nurses are actu- ally involved in euthanasia. In the second study, nursing invol- vement will be explored quantitatively. Based on the qualitative study's results and a literature survey on this subject, a valid instrument will be developed that can chart in detail the invol- vement of Flemish nurses. The philosophical-ethical component of the research project also consists of two studies.
