Making End of Life Decisions: What are the Options in Ohio?

In person or on Zoom

March 17, 2024 @ 9:00 am 10:00 am

Speakers: Lisa Vigil Schattinger, MSN, RN, founder of Ohio End of Life Options (OELO); Ann Rowland, retired Assistant US Attorney, board member, OELO.

Several states have statutes permitting Medical Aid in Dying (MAID) for competent adults who are terminally ill. The speakers will review the laws nationwide and legislative efforts in Ohio.  Without a MAID law in Ohio, what are the options for the terminally ill?  The speakers will discuss Voluntarily Stopping Eating and Drinking (VSED), advance directives with dementia provisions, and hospice care.  They will also discuss their thoughts about navigating end of life decision-making with loved ones based on their personal experiences.
