Compassion & Choices is the world leader in the practice of legal aid-in-dying, in which a competent adult with a terminal illness may self-administer medication as a means to end life. Since the initial passage of the Oregon Death with Dignity Law in 1994, Compassion & Choices of Oregon has worked closely with hundreds of physicians, pharmacies, hospice workers, clergy, and families who support the right of individuals to make considered and informed choices at the end of life. The organization follows strict guidelines and safeguards to ensure that all of the requirements of Oregon’s aid-in-dying law are fulfilled.
We need your help to protect the rights of Oregonians to have choice at the end of life. For more information please contact Susan Prior, Development Manager of Compassion & Choices of Oregon by phone 503-525-1956 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
When & Where
Compassion & Choices of Oregon
Compassion & Choices of Oregon is a resource for Oregonians as they make end-of-life decisions and plan for a caring, gentle death according to their own values and beliefs.
We provide terminally ill, mentally competent adults with a network of professionals, who inform, educate and counsel them on the broad range of end-of-life options.
We complement the implementation of the Oregon Death with Dignity Law by ensuring qualified Oregonians with safe and responsible access to use the law.
Compassion’s volunteer team and staff include clergy, mental health professionals, attorneys, physicians, hospice nurses, palliative care specialists, and others experienced in helping terminally ill patients, their families and caregivers.
Through our experience we have developed an extensive database of community resources. We have access to professionals who provide terminally ill Oregonians the support they need to face the end of life with dignity.
