    • Overview

      Health care practitioner assisted suicide (“Death with Dignity”) statutes currently exist in 9 states with the potential to expand to more. Pharmacists in these states dispense the drugs that patients use but may not be adequately familiar with their legal responsibilities and the pharmacological/clinical characteristics of the drugs used. Pharmacists should also be knowledgeable and contribute to the national debate over this important issue.
