    Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Pflegemanagement / Sozialmanagement, be aware: 1,0, Alice-Salomon Hochschule Berlin , Veranstaltung: Sozial- und gesundheitswissenschaftliche Grundlagen in der Pflege, sixteen Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Inhaltlich habe ich mich in der vorliegenden Arbeit mit Formen der Sterbehilfe beschäftigt und in
    diesem Kontext dargestellt, wie die rechtliche state of affairs um Sterbehilfe in der BRD und in den
    uns benachbarten Ländern ist. Es ermöglicht meines Erachtens eine gehaltvollere und
    gewinnbringendere Auseinandersetzung jedes Einzelnen mit dem Thema Sterbehilfe. Darüber
    hinaus habe ich einen kurzen Abriss über die historische Entwicklung von „Euthanasie“
    dargestellt. Ich denke, in der Auseinandersetzung mit einem Thema solcher Brisanz und
    Aktualität, das aber auch schon vielen Generationen vor uns zum Nachdenken und Umdenken
    angeregt hat, sollten die grundlegendsten historischen Aspekte bekannt sein. Mir hat es geholfen
    zu verstehen, warum die Diskussion um Aktive Sterbehilfe nicht abzubrechen scheint und immer
    wieder öffentlich diskutiert wird. Des Weiteren fällt es mir mittels des Wissens um die
    historischen Hintergründe leichter, die aktuelle Rechtslage politisch einzuordnen. Es gibt mir die
    Chance, die scheinbare Zurückhaltung in der Legalisierung von „Euthanasie“ nachzuvollziehen.
    Analyse und Auseinandersetzung mit dem von mir gewählten Thema „Und wieder Euthanasie in
    Deutschland…?“ erfolgte mittels intensiver Recherche in verschiedenen Publikationen unter den
    Stichworten „Sterbehilfe“, „Aktive Sterbehilfe“, „Euthanasie“. Sterbehilfe wird im historischen
    Kontext vorgestellt, die Diskussion um Aktive Sterbehilfe in der aktuellen Lage in Deutschland
    betrachtet und analysiert, wie die Rechtslage in den Niederlanden und der Schweiz ist. Darüber
    hinaus habe ich mein Wissen mittels Internetrecherchen vertieft. Zum Teil bin ich durch die
    Lektüre selbst auf bestimmte Seiten hingewiesen worden, andere fand ich mittels der
    Suchmaschine Google unter den Stichworten „Euthanasie“, „Aktive Sterbehilfe“.
