Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) - Updating Guidance Documents
August 24, 2016
The evolution of ACP’s guidance documents on MAID has been delayed, as experiences and new learning evolve. Alberta Health Services (AHS) has developed a new version of the MAID protocol; providing enhanced guidance for physicians, pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians.
ACP’s MAID working group is reviewing the amendments and will be considering it in context with updated guidance that has been provided by CPSA to physicians. This will inform ACP’s publication of a single, current guidance document for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.
While under review, ACP has temporarily removed the AHS protocol from the “members only” section of the ACP website. Should you receive a prescription for MAID during this period, please contact registrar Greg Eberhart at firstname.lastname@example.org for guidance.
