An outline and discussion of MAiD – Medical Aid in Dying in the state of New Jersey.

Presenters: Dr. Robin Plumer and Elizabeth Stanton, MSN, have been participating in the NJ Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD) program since 2020. They have advised hundreds of patients who have questions about MAiD, and have attended well over 100 MAiD deaths. A particular focus of their practice is on patients with ALS, who sometimes have specific needs for self-administration of medication. They are devoted to knowing their patients and families personally, and in supporting them with symptom management as well as MAiD care
