  • On Wednesday, November 13th, 2013, Paul-André Gauthier, a clinical nurse specialist, did an interview of 17 minutes on TFO (French) provincial television to discuss end-of-life care. He positioned himself against euthanasia and against assisted suicide. He suggested that a wider implementation of palliative care would enable individuals to have a better experience of care when facing a terminal illness without exposing them to treatments that are aggressive and poorly supported by pain and symptom control.
