Health Care Providers
Under our current legislation, only doctors and nurse practitioners are eligible to become assessors or providers of MAiD.
I am happy to support you through the MAiD process if you have any questions (there is no better teacher than experience!)
If you are willing to be an assessor for your patient I strongly urge you to read and follow the BC College of Physicians and Surgeon’s Guidelines on MAiD, as they are mandatory, and also read the FAQs.
Used in the assessment of eligibility by a medical doctor or a nurse practitioner. This clinician will NOT be providing medications, only assessing for eligibility for MAiD.
Not routinely necessary. Used when there is a question about the capacity to make this choice and a clinician with expertise in capacity assessments becomes involved.
If a clinician receives a written request for MAiD but does not feel able or willing to provide care, this form is mandatory and must be reported to the Ministry of Health.
In certain circumstances, when there is a risk of loss of capacity, a patient who has already been found eligible for MAiD may waive the requirement to provide consent on the day of MAiD itself.
