If you have a terminal condition and are considering aid in dying, we will attempt to refer you to physicians who can consider your aid-in-dying request. The requirements are that you: *Live in a state where aid in dying is legal *Have a terminal diagnosis with a less than six-month prognosis *Have the capacity to make your own medical decisions.
Please be sure to ask your present doctors about considering your request for medical aid in dying. If they are not experienced with aid in dying, let them know that the Academy’s physicians will work with them on the details, from the law to the medications used. There is no charge for this and they do not have to be a member of the Academy. Please share our contact information with your doctors: [email protected]
