The League of Women Voters of Piedmont presents a discussion of California’s End of Life Option Act, implemented in 2016. Modeled after the Oregon Death with Dignity Act, the law allows certain terminally ill individuals to legally request and obtain physician prescribed medications to end their life in a humane and dignified manner.

Speaker Thalia DeWolf, RN is a certified hospice and palliative care nurse, and Clinical Coordinator of Bay Area End of Life Options, founded by Dr. Lonny Shavelson, a prominent authority in the field. Their medical practice has considerable experience with patients requesting medical aid in dying. Ms. DeWolf will describe the new law, as well as how patients receive complete end-of-life care, including the option of medical aid in dying.
