Speaker: Mitsuo Tomita, M.D. Mits is long-time member of the Hemlock Society of San Diego and a physician retired from Kaiser . Dr. Tomita shared with us some of the findings from the first (as far as we know) conference ever held on VSED (vee-sed). It was mentioned in the talk that VSED can sometimes be faster (usually 6-13 days) than using the law when you consider the time spent trying to find willing doctors and waiting the required waiting times.

We apologize that the video of this talk is not available due to technical issues. Click this link to see a .pdf file of the VSED slide presentation.

Phyllis Shachter’s husband used VSED. She has a excellent website on choice in dying.
