Updated Key Messages: Palliative Care and Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD)

(May 17, 2019) The Canadian Society of Palliative Care Physicians released an updated document today entitled Key Messages: Palliative Care and Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD). MAiD became legal in Canada in June 2016 when the Parliament of Canada passed federal legislation allowing eligible Canadian adults to request it. Prior to the legislation, the CSPCP developed Key Messages about Physician Hastened Death which were released in October 2015. The updated Key Messages reaffirm our original position and frame it in the current Canadian context.
