NHHPCO's Success is Thanks to You
Thank you for your support!
SB426 - Commission to study end of life issues - inexpedient to legislate (123/174 vote)
The proposed purpose of the commission's study would have included, but not be limited to, reviewing RSA 137-J, investigating the positive and negative effects of legislation in states that have enacted aid in dying laws, innovation practices of other states, how to encourage careful and responsible deliberation about this issue, and any other matter the commission deems relevant to its objective.
SB419 - Changes to law governing therapeutic cannabis - passed with amendment
This bill makes several changes to the Therapeutic Use of Cannabis statute (RSA 126-X), including allowing physicians and advanced practice registered nurses (APRN) licensed in Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont to complete certifications for potentially qualifying patients.
The Membership has Spoken
Thank you to all who attended our General Membership meeting on April 18th and to those who send their vote on the proposed by-law change ahead of the meeting. It was unanimous approval to extend NHHPCO Provider Membership to any state licensed Hospice Provider.
I also want to thank Marianne Jackson, MD for her presentation on "What Happened to Natural Causes?" She was well received and led all attendees in some meaningful conversation about having "the conversation" for advanced care planning. Feel free to email her to host this presentation in your community.
