Se possibile gradirei sapere da voi alcuni dati circa l'eutanasia e il rapporto tra infermiere e paziente che fa richiesta di essere sottoposto all'eutanasia e il compito dell'assistenza da parte del personale nei paesi in cui la pratica di morte richiesta e' concessa. Queste informazioni le richiedo per una tesi universitaria. ringrazio e attendo vostre gentili risposte.
