If you haven’t already done so, please take a moment to complete the MAID survey sent via email on October 20. Your participation in this brief survey will help to ensure MAID interventions can be easily accommodated in your community. The survey will be available online until midnight on Thursday, November 3, 2016.
Since federal legislation for Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) was introduced just over four months ago, ACP has received multiple requests from Alberta Health Services (AHS) coordinators seeking pharmacists and pharmacies to provide services to support MAID.
We are once again inviting pharmacy licensees to participate in a short survey to determine their pharmacy’s readiness and willingness to provide compounding and dispensing services to support MAID. If you already participated in the initial survey sent back in June, your responses have been captured and there is no need to resubmit.
We will be sharing this information with AHS to support their role in coordinating MAID for individuals who qualify for this service and wish that it be provided outside of AHS facilities.
