North Carolina's Right to a Natural Death Act recognizes a patient's right to a peaceful and natural death. The NCMS Ethical and Judicial Affairs Committee has worked to develop and pass legislation that promotes patient self-determination at the end of life. These efforts have resulted in the creation and recognition of advance directives that enable patients to express their end of life wishes. The NCMS continues to work to advance end of life initiatives. For more information, please email or call Varsha Gadani at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-833-3836.
