Health Canada invited submissions regarding proposed regulations for monitoring of MAiD (viewable here: http://www.gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p1/2017/2017-12-16/html/reg6-eng.html)
The CSPCP submitted two strong recommendations:
1. To record the nature of the grievous and irremediable suffering
2. To measure, monitor, and reporting on the availability of alternatives such as palliative care, social services, and respite.
In October 2017, the Canadian Society of Palliative Care Physicians (CSPCP) conducted a survey of its members regarding Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD). The purpose of the survey was to help the CSPCP Board to accurately represent members’ views and to guide future actions.
