The Regional Euthanasia Review Committees in The Netherlands have presented their combined report covering Calendar Year 2016.  The English-language version is not yet available.  However, it is clear from the Dutch text that the number of reported cases of physician-assisted suicide (PAS) and physician-administered euthanasia (PAE) rose by over 10 per cent since 2015 and that the pattern of illnesses forming a basis for approving PAS and PAE is changing significantly.  We will publish the English-language version when it appears.  Here we publish the Dutch-language version.
