Author defends film of assisted dying as BBC fields complaints

I make no apologies for discussing death on a MS Blog. MS is a serious disease and the topic needs airing. Did you watch the BBC documentary on assisted suicide with Terry Pratchett? For those of you living the UK, who missed it, you can see it on the BBC iPlayer: Choosing to Die.

Please Click here for The Independent's report on the program!

Death and assisted suicide in the context of MS a difficult subject to discuss. We are trying to get some data on this issue to guide us with our clinical service development. If you are involved in MS in any way we would appreciate 5 minutes of your time to complete the following survey: end-of-life survey. We promise to publish the headline results of the survey on this blog in the near future. Thank you. 

If you don't have access to BBC iPlayer you may find the The Richard Dimbleby Lecture delivered by Terry Pratchett called "Shaking Hands with Death" in 2010, of interest. It covers similar ground.
