Nurses must give a ear to patients when they want to talk, without the fear or guilt that their actions could be misconstrued as helping patients take their own lives.

Patients must be allowed to come out with their worries and pain.

The guidance from RCN on assisted suicide is applicable in Wales, Scotland, and England where helping others commit suicide is considered illegal.
