End of Life Option Act Update (September 2017)
What are we learning? What's ahead?
The End of Life Option Act (EoLOA) was enacted in June 2016. A year later, we’re looking at both hard data released by the California Department of Public Health and information provided to us by health care providers, systems, and patients.
In this webinar, Lael Duncan, MD, medical director at Coalition for Compassionate Care of California (CCCC), will be covering the information California has so far: what we’ve learned, what’s starting to become clear, and what questions are coming up as the law matures.
Before joining the Coalition in 2014, Dr. Duncan was Co-Founder and Medical Director of Good Medicine Consult and Advocacy Services, PC, a practice in the San Francisco Bay Area focused on assisting patients and families with Shared Medical Decisions and values-based care planning. While at Good Medicine, she pioneered their Advance Care Planning program. Dr. Duncan is a licensed California physician with over 15 years of clinical practice in Internal Medicine, Infectious Disease, and Long Term Acute Care for patients with multi-system disease. She has been an active volunteer for the Coalition since 2010.
