Resumen

Las condiciones bajo las cuales el suicidio asistido por médicos podría considerarse aceptable han sido estudiadas en una muestra de rumanos adultos. Los participantes (52 profesionales de la salud y 212 personas non-expertas) examinaron una serie de 36 escenarios realísticos compuestos por combinación de cuatro factores: la edad del paciente, el nivel de curación de la enfermedad, el tipo de sufrimiento, y la demanda del paciente. La recorrida de datos tuvo lugar desde Julio, 2015 hasta mayo, 2016. La mayoría de los participantes (85% de los profesionales y 51% de los non-expertos) expresaron su oposición al suicidio asistido cual sean las condiciones. Los factores más importantes para determinar el nivel de aceptabilidad en los otros participantes fueron la demanda de asistencia a morir (32%) y la edad avanzada (18%).
