Webinar: California Advance Health Care Directives and End-of-Life Option Act
March 17, 2021 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
1 Hour MCLE
This webinar will discuss both California Advance Health Care Directives (AHCDs) and the California End-of-Life Option Act (EOLOA). It is intended both for non-estate planning attorneys who will want this information for themselves as well as for family members, friends, and clients, and also for estate-planning attorneys who are advising clients. The program will include an overview of the California AHCD, as well as a discussion of different health care choices that are available when making end-of-life decisions.
The webinar also explains California’s EOLOA, including who is eligible, the procedures that must be followed, and the rights and obligations of the patient and the provider. The program will also explain how the EOLOA and other end of life medical treatments and options apply with the AHCD.
