Protecting Psychiatric Patients and Others from the Assisted-Suicide Movement: Insights and Strategies

By Barbara A. Olevitch | Go to book overview

develop a more responsive medical community, and a cooperative alliance between medicine and the mental health professions, we will be able to demonstrate that patients’ pain and suffering can be soothed by palliative care and skilled emotional support, and their fears can be eased by good patient education. We can show society how to minimize stress instead of minimizing expenditures. We can lead the way to a culture that encourages healthy human interdependence that enables even sick and handicapped people to thrive psychologically.
