[MOL] Attitudes toward Hastened Death

ABSTRACT: The Schedule of Attitudes toward Hastened Death: Measuring
    Desire for Death in Terminally Ill Cancer Patients
    [06/15/2000; Cancer Online (Free Registration Required)]

BACKGROUND: The authors examined the reliability and
validity of the Schedule of Attitudes toward Hastened Death (SAHD),
a self-report measure of desire for death previously validated
in a population of individuals with the acquired immunodeficiency
syndrome (AIDS), among terminally ill patients with cancer. 

CONCLUSIONS: The SAHD appears to be a reliable and valid measure of 
desire for death among terminally ill cancer patients. Coupled with
previous research in patients with AIDS, these results support
the utility of the SAHD for research addressing interest in hastened
death in patients with a life-threatening medical illness.
