June 13, 2016 Because We Are Catholic, Publications

Doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals and organizations – recognizing the fundamental shift in patient care this law entails – have announced they will not participate.  Instead, they are recommitting to better end-of-life care, better education for patients and families, and a better overall approach to treatment at the end of life.
