The medical model of aid in dying helps ensure that doctors can ethically practice aid in dying in an open, legitimate and accessible way, and integrates the option into patients’ end-of-life care. Medical aid in dying is authorized in ten jurisdictions: Oregon, Washington, Montana, Vermont, California, Colorado, Washington, D.C., Hawaii, New Jersey, and Maine. Join us to discuss the history of the law and how it supports patients at the end of life.

This program is approved by the DC Board of Nursing for 1.5 contact hours.
