Physician aid-in-dying (PAD) is a highly contentious issue in bioethics and health policy today. Data on physicians’ experiences and assessment of key bioethical issues in PAD derive from small, qualitative studies rather than from quantitative studies due to high costs of large physician surveys and concerns about anonymity. We aim to develop and test a novel efficient, low cost, anonymous methodology to facilitate bioethics-related physician surveys. This study will result in generalizable findings that bring bioethics into policy and decision-making processes about PAD.
