Your first question: "PAS has a role in hospice"
is very vague. What do you mean by "has a role?"
-- Hospice agencies should continue to treat people pursuing PAD?
-- Hospice agencies should help individuals interested in PAD with the process?
-- Hospice agencies should provide information related to PAD?
-- Hospice personnel should be present when the Rx is administered?
There's a pretty broad spectrum of "involvement."
Your demographic data should include state of residence, or at least some info about any experience with either working in a state that has legal PAD or in a state where there have been attempts to legalize PAD.
Finally, I hope you have taken the time to read:
