The fifth Podcast continues discussion of the Lethal Salts by taking a look at a number of eye witness accounts and teasing out some of the elements of the Exit RPA Test - the Reliability, Peacefulness, Availability Test.
This week we take the lead from the plethora of news reports on 'happy hypoxia' vis a vis COVID-19 and a good death. The second topic is the recent Dutch Supreme Court decision that confirmed that doctors should act upon an advance directive that contains a person's wish for euthanasia in the context of advanced dementia.
The COVID pandemic has brought new urgency to end of life planning, as far as Advance Directives go. The recent decision by the Dutch High Court which confirms a person's right to access euthanasia via an advance directive request - should they find themselves in the future - shows that the times of Advance Directives are indeed a' changing!
