  • Event Type:Lectures & Special Events
Details:

In 2016, Colorado passed a law giving individuals new options when facing unrelenting pain and suffering at the end of their lives. The Colorado End-of-Life Options Act allows terminally ill adults to take life-ending, doctor-prescribed medication. Even though it’s been more than a year since the Act took effect, many people have questions about it.

Drs. Jean Abbott and Ben Keidan will provide answers to common questions about the Colorado End-of-Life Options Act, including the evolution of the law, common beliefs and concerns about it and specific requirements for patients, medical facilities and health care providers.
