The Physician Client Relationship

is a pivotal aspect to the required
Death With Dignity process.


End of Life Choices Oregon provides personal support and information regarding Death with Dignity (DWD) and other legal end of life options to Oregonians facing end of life decisions, to the medical community and to the public.

Who We Are

End of Life Choices Oregon (EOLCOR) is a non-profit 501(c)(3)  organization that assists Oregonians with the Death With Dignity (DWD) and Voluntarily Stop Eating and Drinking (VSED). We also educate in other end-of-life issues such as Advance Directives, Portable Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatments (POLST) and patients’ rights. We offer information about all options.

The Choice is Yours

A person’s call to EOLCOR is answered or returned without delay. Our intake specialist answers questions and assesses the caller’s needs. If more assistance is needed, the client’s information is entered into a confidential database, and additional Information is mailed to those who would like to receive it. Personal help is offered, and volunteers are available to see people in their homes. Contact between client, the client’s family and/or caregivers and the volunteer is done at the client’s discretion, as we offer our service per the client’s needs and desires.

Dedicated Volunteers

The volunteer interacts personally with clients and their caregivers to provide them with details of available options. When this is completed, the client can make an informed decision regarding if or what they would like to do. If a client chooses to pursue Oregon’s Death with Dignity (DWD), volunteers will personally steward them through the legal process. If a client is not on hospice, we encourage them to ask their doctor about being enrolled.

We support a person’s autonomous decision with non-judgmental regard.
All information remains confidential.

We Are Inclusive

End of Life Choices Oregon (EOLCOR) honors and accepts people of all races, ethnicity, culture, gender identification, religion, disabilities, age, sexual orientation and nationality. We work openly and without detriment to support volunteers, staff and clients, without regard to their beliefs or backgrounds.  EOLCOR’s core values encourage an environment of open-mindedness within the organization and in our interaction with clients, hospices and the medical community.


By working together, we can assist you with your most common questions:

How do I start?   Who should I talk to?   How can I get through this?   Can you help me communicate with my doctor?   Are there people here to help me?

Common Concerns


Before an illness occurs, it’s important to talk to your doctor about your end-of-life wishes and the possibility of using DWD, should that be your choice. Ask if he/she would honor your wishes as either the required prescribing or consulting physician.

Planning Ahead

Two Oregon physicians must agree: one is the prescribing physician and the other is the consulting physician. If either physician questions your mental capacity, they may require that you see a psychiatrist or psychologist for evaluation.
