Abstract

Caregivers such as nurses and nursing students have different religiosity backgrounds and have important roles as to terminally ill patients and euthanasia; however, they have different levels of knowledge and experience. Accordingly, the study identify differences between caregivers’ religiosity level and euthanasia attitudes, examine differences between caregivers regarding attitude to euthanasia and identify differences between nurses by incidence of terminal patient caring and their relationship to euthanasia. Caregivers (210) volunteered fulfill survey. Main result suggests differences mostly between secular and traditional groups as to euthanasia. Accordingly, our suggestion is that the caregivers should improve communication via simulation of discussing euthanasia.
