​ NPs have the following role in MAiD:
  • determining the eligibility of the person requesting MAiD based on the eligibility criteria in the Criminal Code
  • providing MAiD by prescribing, administering or providing the medication to a person, at their request, that causes their death
  • providing medication to a person, at their request, so that they may self-administer it and cause their death
  • aiding another physician or NP in the provision of MAiD

Standards, limits and conditions related to the NP's role in determining eligibility for and providing MAiD are in the NP Scope of Practice.

Along with meeting BCCNM's Standards of Practice, NPs are expected to work with their employer(s) to meet MAiD policies, standards and relevant legislation.
