Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID)
All our physicians are supportive of patients who wish to discuss Medical Assistance in Dying as an option of care. We will supply information about MAID as well as all your other care options if you so wish. We may ask how you feel about MAID first to know if it is something you wish for us to bring up in conversation or not. All our physicians also provide palliative care. We see MAID as an option on the menu of end of life care.
We feel strongly that our patients should receive excellent care at all times and no less so at End of Life. We are not scared to have difficult conversations about death and dying – we know most people are a bit frightened of what may come and are nervous to talk about their fears. We will talk about it as much or little as you need. Talking about your goals, hopes and fears may help us figure out together how to best care for you. We want to respect your wishes and ensure we walk this road with you.
All our physicians are knowledgeable about MAID and can explain the process to you and your family. All our full time physicians can complete formal MAID assessments. Dr. Daws is one of the local MAID providers and would be happy to provide further information upon request. Your family physician can refer you to Dr. Daws or any MAID provider locally.
