Dr. Jean Marmoreo shares excerpts from her book The Last Doctor. Lessons in Living from the Front Lines of Medical Assistance in Dying
Dr. Jean Marmoreo believes the best care a health professional can provide is to honour a patient’s life and to end it on the patient’s terms. For 45 years Dr. Jean Marmoreo was a family physician practising in downtown Toronto, and in 2016 became one of Canada’s first practitioners of MAiD, to provide Medical Assistance in Dying.
Dr. Marmoreo shares powerful patient stories and her journey into caregiving and end-of-life decision-making.
