My Pledge To My Patients
I will treat the sick according to my best ability and judgement, always striving to do no harm. Whenever I care for a terminally-ill patient, I will provide optimal comfort care until natural death.
I will also support my patients' wishes not to prolong the dying process with futile care. I will never give a deadly drug to anyone if asked, nor will I suggest suicide.
I will always affirm and guard these ethical principles with integrity, recognizing that every human life is inherently valuable.
My Pledge To My Patients from the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition will be sent out, at no cost, to any physician who agrees with its principles. Email EPC at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
