CSPCP input to proposed regulations for monitoring of MAiD

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.
