The Role of Doulas in Aid-in-Dying Care

An overview and suggestions for best practices

I am honored to have my article included in the
American Clinicians Academy on Medical Aid in Dying's inaugural edition of their medical journal.

 

Abstract: Many end-of-life doulas offer support to individuals who are considering, or elect to utilize, medical aid in dying. Doulas and medical clinicians share a common goal of providing the best possible experience for their mutual clients. Working in tandem, they serve this goal with frequent communication, knowledgable monitoring of symptoms and disease progression, and thoughtful planning before, during, and-for loved ones- after the aid-in-dying day.

The Road Less Traveled

Doing Death with a Doula

“A doula is somebody who companions and bears witness to the experience of the dying.“ 

“What I love to say to my clients is, ‘death is not an emergency.’ Sometimes it is…but in many cases it can be a non-emergency, especially once death has occurred we are allowed to slow down…We also hope that we can help families to slow down before death has occurred, be present with the experience.”

“What we are all trying to do is support people in coming home into their own innate wisdom of death and dying and reclaim it for themselves.”
