Death With Dignity
Posted by PAs ConnectComment


The New York Times

Oregon PA Barbara Coombs Lee wrote an Op-Ed published  in The New York Times about the national end-of-life choice movement.

Coombs Lee was a coauthor of the Oregon Death With Dignity Act, which allows mentally competent, terminally ill adults with less than six months to live to end their lives with self-administered prescribed medication. A leading voice in the movement, Coombs Lee practiced as a nurse and PA for 25 years before becoming an attorney and devoting her professional life to individual choice and empowerment in healthcare. Oregon was the first state to pass a death with dignity law.
