Voluntary Stopping of Eating and Drinking (VSED) - A Little Known End of Life Option - Passmore

Thursday, June 27, 2019

As modern technology prolongs our lives, a life well-lived can often end with a long and painful struggle. Increasingly, there are choices available for end-of-life options that afford greater personal control over the time and manner of death. A “good death” is more likely when medical practitioners and those supporting the dying person are more informed about these options. The Project EngAGE End of Life Choices Senior Resource Team proudly hosts Elliott and Susan Schaffer for a discussion on the medical, ethical and legal issues involving VSED, Voluntary Stopping of Eating and Drinking - a little known end of life option.
