Hawaii Our Care, Our Choice Act

On April 5, 2018, Governor David Ige signed the Hawaii Our Care, Our Choice Act into law—allowing mentally capable, terminally ill adults with six months or less to live to request medical aid-in-dying medication from their doctor which they self-administer if their suffering becomes unbearable, to bring about a peaceful death. This law will go into effect on Tuesday, January 1, 2019.

Below is a list of collated resources to help healthcare providers and their patients prepare for this monumental change.
