MAID in Ontario: Challenges and Opportunities for Providers

Thursday, November 23
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM

Medical assistance in dying (MAID) became legal in Canada in 2016. Since then, many physicians and NPs involved in providing end of life care have had to keep pace with a rapidly evolving set of medical, legal, and organizational changes and challenges in the assessment and provision of MAID. This session aims to educate participants on the current landscape of MAID services in Ontario. Access to MAID in our province is hampered by a lack of centralized resources, and instead there is a patchwork of supports available to providers. Through discussion of actual MAID cases, we hope to highlight the factors that contribute to how MAID has been successfully implemented in various Ontario communities to date, and how to approach and navigate barriers to assisted dying.


Please note that this presentation presumes a basic knowledge of MAID and an interest in supporting the delivery of MAID services in Ontario.
