Providing Patient-Centered Care: Medical Assistance in Dying and End-of-Life Care


Course description

The Criminal Code of Canada was amended to allow a person to request and receive, under limited circumstances, a substance intended to end their life.  The role of health care providers is specifically addressed in the legislation, and practice standards have been developed (e.g. College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC, College of Pharmacists of BC and the College of Registered Nurses of BC) that support a health care professional’s role in the provision or support of Medical Assistance in Dying.  The discussion will emphasize how this new care option fits in the context of palliative and end-of-life care in Canada, as well as the criteria put in place to ensure that an eligible person only gives consent after having been informed of the means that are available to relieve their suffering, including palliative care.
