First unofficial report on Dutch Euthanasia numbers for 2015

One of the chairpersons of one of the Dutch Review Commissions reported unofficially when giving a presentation at a Dutch Symposium on the trend in numbers for 2015. Was the increase in 2014 and earlier 10 – 15 %,  the expectation for 2015 will be that the numbers go up for some 5 % only. The numbers for dementia (all early stages) increased from 81 in 2014 to a little over 100 in 2015. The psychiatry cases from 41 in 2014 to over 50 in 2015.

The definite report from the (5) Review Commissions will be published end of April, beginning of May 2016.
