Event description

Description

The Montana Supreme Court decided Baxter v Montana in 2009, opening the door to the practice of Aid in Dying (AID) in Montana, in a manner that left the legislature latitude to regulate or prohibit it. Legislators have introduced both sorts of measures but none have been enacted in the decade since. Accordingly, AID is governed by the Baxter decision, which sets the framework for eligibility and physician practice, but otherwise leaves the practice to standard of care. This is a very different approach to AID than in states that impose a complex regulatory statute.

This symposium brings together clinicians, attorneys, jurists, policy makers, family member survivors of dying patients, and researchers to review and discuss the decade of AID practice in Montana and the lessons which can be gleaned, which may inform other states considering standard of care governance of AID.
