Abstract

In the Netherlands, in 1995 approximately 9700 people explicitly requested euthanasia or assisted suicide (EAS), and EAS was performed approximately 3600 times (2.7% of all deaths). The most important reasons for not performing EAS when requested by a patient were that the patient died before EAS was performed, or that the physician refused the request.
