Find more on MAID

If you are an NP who provides Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID), or an RN or RPN who supports NPs or provides nursing care to patients receiving MAID, CNO has more guidance for you.

Our Guidance on Nurses’ Roles in Medical Assistance in Dying resource provides information about nurses’ accountabilities related to MAID. We have updated it to reflect the recent changes resulting from Bill C-7’s changes to the Criminal Code.

The new changes include expanded eligibility and witness requirements, two new sets of safeguards, and changes to advanced consent, monitoring and reporting requirements. You can see a detailed breakdown of the changes in our April issue of The Standard.

For more information, visit our MAID webpage, where you will find answers to frequently asked questions and a comprehensive list of resources.
