2. Nurses’ emotional and psychological preparedness to discuss MAID with patients and their families
3. Nurses’ emotional and psychological preparedness and willingness to be involved in the MAID process
4. Nurses’ understanding of the knowledge, care and skills required for the provision of MAID
5. Nurses’ opinions and beliefs of the legal implications (e.g. conscientious objection), and psychological risks (moral distress) associated with this approach to end-of-life-care
