Do no harm. Thou shalt not kill. Life is sacred and should be protected at all costs, right? But when is life no longer worth living? Who decides? And what do we do about it?

In this episode, Emily discusses the murky ethical dilemmas of medical aid in dying with award-winning journalist Katie Engelhart, the author of The Inevitable: Dispatches On The Right to Die.

The Nocturnists are partnering with VCU Health Continuing Education to offer free CME credits for healthcare professionals. Visit to claim credit for this episode.
