More Healthy Elderly Patients Raising The Issue Of “Rational Suicide”.

According to Medscape (4/9), “The incidence of healthy elderly patients raising the issue of ‘rational suicide’ is on the rise, and clinicians need to be prepared to address it.” Medscape points out that “at the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry (AAGP) 2015 Annual Meeting, a session dedicated to the issue aimed to provide guidance to clinicians who may be faced with elderly patients expressing a desire to die by suicide while they are still relatively healthy and cognitively intact.”
