Institute on Aging, Compassion & Choices and Reimagine End of Life invite you to join us for a presentation and panel discussion of Clinical Considerations in Medical Aid In Dying.
The End Of Life Option Act, signed into law in California (in 2016), allows for a physician to prescribe a lethal dose of medication to terminally ill people who have a prognosis of 6 months or less—and who meet stringent eligibility criteria and voluntarily make the request. Legal in California, as it is in eight other states (plus the District of Columbia), Medical Aid In Dying is now part of end-of-life care, and yet access to best practice guidelines and clinical updates remains limited.
Our panel discussion brings together clinician experts who work with patients as they consider and enroll in Medical Aid In Dying programs within the Bay Area. Learn how clinicians are adapting to working with patients considering medical aid in dying, and how EOLOA programs are being designed to provide quality care and support to patients and family members, as well as to clinicians.
