End-of-life options in New Mexico include a wide range of choices now, from continuing with a variety of treatments to a conscious decision to find a peaceful death, including medical aid in dying. This presentation discusses all of them with an emphasis on important aspects of the Elizabeth Whitefield End-of-Life Options Act passed in the 2021 legislative session.

Jan Wilson has volunteered with Compassion & Choices for 10 years, making presentations about advance healthcare planning and directives. Since the passage of the Elizabeth Whitefield End-of-Life Options Act, she has co-chaired the Public Outreach and Education Committee of the newly formed End-of-Life Options NM organization to bring information about medical aid in dying as well as other last, end-of-life choices to fellow New Mexicans.
