2023 Medical Aid in Dying Policy Book Cover

We recognize that medical aid in dying can seem like a complex issue, but with 25 years of experience since the law was first enacted in Oregon and years of experience from the other authorized jurisdictions, this compassionate option has proven not only to protect patients, but to improve care across the end-of-life spectrum. This resource is intended to provide you with up-to-date, data-driven, research-based, patient-supported facts about medical aid in dying and to address the most common questions, concerns and hypothetical claims that we hear across the nation. It is offered in the spirit of partnership, and in the hope that we can build on the positive evidence and experience of the authorized jurisdictions by passing sound legislation.
