Class Canceled – The California End of Life Option Act
This Event has been canceled….The speaker is very sorry and has promised to come in the fall or winter.
How and When the Provisions of this Law May Be Utilized
The California End of Life Option Act, which authorizes the practice of medical aid in dying, went into effect on June 9, 2016. It specifies that mentally capable adults who have six months or less to live can request a doctor’s prescription for medication that they could decide to take in their final days or weeks, in order to end unbearable suffering and to die peacefully.
Dr. Susan Hughmanick is an obstetrician-gynecologist who practices in Aptos. Because she values the availability of this choice for patients, Dr. Hughmanick volunteers her time explaining the provisions of the End of Life Option Act to community groups.
