Talking to patients about death can be difficult, but it doesn't have to be. Join Compassion & Choices Medical Director, Dr. Grube, to learn about the clinical competencies involved in all end-of-life choices with particular emphasis on medical aid-in-dying, an end-of-life option that is becoming integrated into standard medical care.
In 2016, California enacted the End of Life Option Act, which allows eligible terminally ill, mentally capable adults with six months or less to live, the option of medical aid-in-dying. Hawaii enacted a similar law this year with New Jersey and Maine following suit. In fact, twenty-two years after Oregon enacted the first medical aid-in-dying law, nine states and Washington D.C. now authorize this end-of-life option. Primary care physicians are often the ones patients turn to for this option and others as they near end of life. Learn about this option and others without fearing the reaper.
- Understand the various end-of-life options available to patients and be able to have in-depth conversations about end-of-life with patients;
- Describe the clinical competencies necessary for participating in medical-aid-in-dying and the requirements of aid-in-dying laws;
- Understand how medical-aid-in-dying interfaces with palliative care;
- Articulate and apply a team approach to patient-centered management for end-of-life care; and,
- Have accurate information on medication protocols for writing prescriptions and other resources.
- Dr. David Grube, National Medical Director, Compassion & Choices
- Samantha Trad, MA, California State Director, Compassion & Choices
- Tom Whaley, Caregiver for terminally ill patient who self-ingested aid-in-dying medication in 2018
