Recently, the Medical Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act went into effect making New Jersey the eighth state in the country to enact the death with dignity statute. The law will allow terminally ill patients to end their own lives in a humane and dignified manner. As healthcare professionals, we often have an important role in helping individuals identify the end-of-life options available to them. This workshop will discuss the current status of the Act and the ethical duty healthcare professionals have to be knowledgeable about this sensitive issue. 1 CEU for Social Workers, Case Managers, Certified Assisted Living Administrators and Licensed Nursing Home Administrators.
