As of November 1, 2018, the federal Ministry of Health released The Regulations for the Monitoring of Medical Assistance in Dying,[1] requiring reporting of medical assistance in dying (MAID) in cases where:

  • medical and nurse practitioners have received a request for MAID in writing and take certain actions, and
  • pharmacists have dispensed a substance in connection with the provision of MAID.

The reporting rules are complex and quite detailed. Please contact either mjdykeman@ddohealthlaw.com or nghalustians@ddohealthlaw.com for more information.
