California End of Life Options Act – Effective June 9

The California End of Life Options Act goes into effect tomorrow.  

Happily, there have been an increasing number of good FAQ and other resources developed for both patients and physicians.  Here is just one.  

Lonny Shavelson launched Bay Area End of Life Options in April.  His practice will be focused on consulting not only with physicians whose patients request aid-in-dying, but also with patients themselves, including offering care to patients who choose him as their “attending End-of-Life physician.”  (KQED)
