Annual End of Life Option Act Report revealed
The California Department of Public Health recently released the 2016 End of Life Option Act (Act) first Annual Report.
The Act, which became law June 9 of last year, allows qualified California terminally ill adults to obtain and self-administer aid-in-dying drugs. The Act requires the Department to provide annual reports, including information on the number of prescriptions written and the number of known individuals who died using aid-in-dying drugs. Additionally, the report includes demographic information on these individuals, including age and underlying illness.
In this first report, for the partial year June 9 – December 31, 2016, 191 individuals received aid-in-dying drugs under the EOLA, and 111 people died following ingestion of the prescribed drugs. Of the 111 individuals, 87.4 percent were more than 60 years of age, 96.4 percent were insured and 83.8 percent were receiving hospice and/or palliative care.
The EOLA report can be found on cdph.ca.gov.
