I am a member of the research project «'Integration' of assisted dying and palliative care», focussing on ethical aspects of this controversial practice – which I have previously addressed in the article «Palliative care ethics: the problems of combining palliation and assisted dying» (2013) as well as in the chapter «Euthanasia and palliative care» (co-authored with Swiss physician and bioethicst Georg Bosshard), Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine (2015; 5th ed.).
