PMID:  9009454     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Although all of us experience death, not all of us think about death or respond to death the same way. This study begins to explore how cultural traditions, education, and tenure in Hawaii impact views of advanced directives, organ donation, suicide, and euthanasia. This information is useful to physicians who need to engage patients and families in discussions about death and end-of-life decision making.
