Together we work to fight this disease among us

Physician Assisted Suicide/Medical Aid in Dying Surveys

HB 160, the Delaware End of Life Options Act Has brought the subject of physician-assisted suicide to the forefront of discussion in Delaware. In an effort to gauge our members' opinion on the subject, the Medical Society of Delaware conducted a survey in April 2018 asking all MSD members to participate. A follow up survey of our membership was conducted in May 2019.  The results of both surveys are below.  Thank you to all who took the time to complete the surveys.
