HB17-1368 - End-of-life Death Certificate Signature

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning a change from 'shall' to 'may' in the 'Colorado End-of-life Options Act' death certificate signature requirement to allow, rather than require, the attending physician or hospice medical director to sign the death certificate of a qualified individual who obtained and self-administered aid-in-dying medication.

Currently, the 'Colorado End-of-life Options Act' requires an attending physician or hospice medical director to sign the death certificate of an individual who obtained and self-administered aid-in-dying medication. The bill removes this requirement.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
