The Ministry of Health on Feb. 25, 2022, released updated provincial forms for medical assistance in dying (MAiD) in B.C. The forms satisfy federal and provincial reporting requirements, in addition to provincial oversight requirements.
The provincial forms and associated instruction guides were updated based on input from B.C. health authorities, BCCNM, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC, the College of Pharmacists of BC, and MAiD providers, among others.
The expectation is that patients and MAiD providers will use the updated forms for all new MAiD cases
as of Feb. 28, 2022. Providers will be allowed to continue using the older version of the forms for pre-existing cases. An educational approach will be favoured when the updated forms are not utilized as expected.
