Suizid - ethische und rechtliche Aspekte


Hoff, Paul (2015). Suizid - ethische und rechtliche Aspekte. Therapeutische Umschau. Revue thérapeutique, 72(10):597-602.

Abstract

Der Beitrag beleuchtet das Phänomen der Suizidalität mit Blick auf das in der jüngeren Vergangenheit intensiv diskutierte medizinethische Spannungsfeld von Patientenautonomie einerseits und ärztlicher Fürsorgepflicht andererseits. Es braucht hier auch zukünftig eine breite gesellschaftliche Debatte. Fragen zur Suizidalität und zum assistierten Suizid betreffen die Medizin und hier speziell die Psychiatrie in hohem Masse, können aber nicht vollständig an sie delegiert werden.

This paper discusses the phenomenom of suicidality with regard to patient autonomy on the one hand and the obligation of medical professionals to provide support and treatment on the other hand. The continuation of a broad debate on these issues within the whole of society is mandatory also in the future. Suicide and assisted suicide are topics with high relevance for medicine in general and for psychiatry in particular. They can, however, not be handled by medical specialists alone.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
