New Jersey joins seven other states in promulgating an Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill statute, sponsored by Senator Kip Bateman (R16) and Assemblyman John Burzichelli (D3), signed into law by Governor Phil Murphy and enacted on August 1, 2019. The law allows terminally ill New Jersey adults who are within 6 months of dying to end their lives peacefully, with dignity, and at their own discretion. In light of its societal significance for New Jersey, the Bloustein School convened a distinguished panel of our state’s healthcare leaders to participate in an open dialogue about the implications this law may have for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, healthcare administrators, related healthcare professionals and society at large.
