End of Life Option Act (September 2018)
Learnings from California's Experience
California has marked over one year of experience with legalized physician aid-in-dying (PAD). Although not the first state to enact PAD, it is the largest and most diverse. We will report the results of a project, funded by the California Health Care and Stupski Foundations, tracking the implementation of the law through: 1) “convening” key stakeholders from around the state, and 2) empirical research. Our experience provides lessons for other localities, including recent adopters such as Colorado, and those considering legalization.
