  December 1, 2017 - Appeared in Crain's Health Pulse

END OF LIFE: A new law signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo allowing nurse practitioners to execute orders pertaining to patients' end-of-life choices will take effect in May 2018. "Decisions about life-sustaining treatment and orders not to resuscitate are deeply personal ones," said Stephen Ferrara, associate dean of clinical affairs at Columbia University School of Nursing and executive director of the Nurse Practitioner Association New York State. For many patients, the nurse practitioner serves as their primary care provider and will now be able to consult with patients on those decisions, he said.
