End of Life: Recommended Reading

Thanks to the advocacy of Dr. Morhaim, Maryland is a leader in processes and mechanisms for advance directives completion, collection/distribution, and access. Maryland's legislation was enacted in the last legislative session. The bills passed both the House and Senate unanimously and were signed by the Governor.

This is relevant to California's "E-POLST" plan. (Maryland's is called PDMP; California's is called CURES.) We in California can learn from Maryland and make similar implementations.

Read Maryland's legislation:

  1. Go to the Maryland General Assembly website.
  2. Enter SB824 and also HB1073 in the "Search" box to review the legislation, fiscal note, and witness testimony (which is slightly different for each bill).
  3. Maryland legislation makes non-CDS information available to clinicians. Look up HB1127 as above.
