End of Life Options / Death with Dignity Act
The Delaware Nurses Association is collecting input from Delaware Nurses related to their professional views on an end of life option commonly referred to as Death with Dignity. Oregon was the first state to enact this legislation in 1997. It has been widely discussed among the healthcare and public communities since.
Delaware policy makers have attempted to introduce this legislation in Delaware. Representative Paul S. Baumbach has spearheaded these efforts. The Delaware Nurses Association would like to hear from our members.
