Examination of State Level Personality Variation and Physician Aid in Dying Legislation

This new article by Rush University Medical Center researchers in the Journal of Pain & Symptom Management concludes that “The social dialogue and potential controversy surrounding physician aid in dying may be linked to aggregate differences in state personality profiles.”

“States with physician aid in dying legislation tend to be areas where constituents are on average more open minded, and experience greater emotional stability. More work is needed to ascertain whether the experiences of receiving and providing end-of-life care may differ across these regions, particularly in relation to conversations around physician aid in dying.”
