Big News

 

End-of-Life Option Available in June
With the close of the California legislature’s special session on healthcare, the End-of-Life Option Act, signed last October by Gov. Jerry Brown, will go into effect in 91 days on June 9. At that time terminally ill Californians will have the option of requesting a medical prescription to end their unbearable suffering with dignity and according to their own wishes.
With this legislative success, the advocacy group Compassion & Choices is providing technical assistance to medical centers, hospice facilities, and non-profit organizations to ensure Californians statewide understand that medical aid in dying is a legitimate, accessible end-of-life care option.
California residents, physicians, and pharmacists can call Compassion & Choices’ free hotline, 1-800-893-4548, for information on the new law. Compassion & Choices also announced the launch of its National Speakers Bureau to place a range of medical leaders and experts at conferences, lecture series, medical and law schools nationwide.
