College publishes new professional standard on MAiD

The College Board has approved a revised professional standard on medical assistance in dying (MAiD), which aligns with the criteria for eligibility for MAiD based on the amended Criminal Code, RSC 1985, c.C-46. The standard also reflects the statutory safeguards and processes. The new standard was developed with input from the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA), and representatives from the Ministry of Health, health authorities, and the Colleges of Registered Nurses and Pharmacists of BC.

The new standard on MAiD can be found here.
