Patient Choices Vermont (PCV) is dedicated to educating Vermonters about Medical Aid in Dying.
Vermont's Patient Choice at End of Life Law (Act 39), enacted in May 2013, enables terminally ill Vermont residents who are capable of making their own medical decisions the option to request and receive medication that they can use to bring about a peaceful death if and when they so choose.
