Description*

Physician-Aid-in-Dying is when a physician provides a competent, terminally ill patient with a prescription for a lethal dose of medication.  The patient intends to use the medication to end his or her own life.  This practice is becoming more common in the United States and there are now five states that have laws in place to permit aid in dying.  Currently, 1 in 5 physicians will be asked to aid in a patient’s death at some point in his or her career. The legalization and practice of physician assisted death raises many legal and ethical issues that need to be explored.  This webinar will discuss what the practice is and what it is not, the laws in place, the ethics for and against it, as well as provide guidance on how to respond if asked during your career.  The course will end with an informative 40 minute documentary.
