RCN position statement on assisted dying

06 November 2014
Position statement sets out the RCN's neutral position with regard to assisted dying for people with a terminal illness, which has been held since 2009.
The RCN is aware that this issue is extremely emotive and causes a great deal of anxiety for nurses in all settings and will continue to seek the views of its members on all issues relating to end of life care.
