Developing a Canadian approach to assisted dying

In 2015, CMA conducted an online dialogue on the topic of assisted dying examining key questions such as:

  • What process should be followed after the patient requests assisted dying?
  • What can physicians do to ensure equal access to assisted dying?
  • What resources would you require to support you as a physician when dealing with assisted dying?

Results of this dialogue will be summarized and presented at the CMA’s General Council meeting, which takes place from August 23 to 26 in Halifax.
