The goal of this resource is to support clinicians (physicians and nurse practitioners) with the provision of MAID and to implement a consistent approach to the process within Ontario. The resource summarizes the requirements outlined in the federal legislation and guidelines by various provincial regulatory colleges, and presents them in a logical sequential order to support clinicians with a patient request for MAID.
This resource also highlights key considerations and recommends processes for the provision of MAID by medical and nurse practitioners based on extensive consultations with key stakeholder organizations and regulatory bodies. It is intended to supplement, not circumvent, existing regulatory body requirements or institutional processes that have been implemented
This resource has been developed by the Centre for Effective Practice with clinical leadership from Dr. Sandy Buchman, in partnership with the Ontario College of Family Physicians and Nurse Practitioners’ Association of Ontario as part of the Knowledge Translation in Primary Care initiative funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
