New Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) education modules are available for health care professionals (HCP) on the
PHSA Learning Hub. The modules were created by the Provincial MAiD Working group with representatives from health authorities, as well as BCCNM, the College of Physician and Surgeons of British Columbia, College of Pharmacists of British Columbia, and the BC Ministry of Health MAiD Oversight Unit.
The modules include new information related to recent legal changes. They will also provide HCPs with a better understanding of MAiD, the process, and how to support clients requesting MAiD. There are three modules.
The first module
Introduction to Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) is intended to be an introduction to MAiD for HCP's, and others, who may have occasional involvement with clients asking about MAiD.
Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD): Roles and Responsibilities of Health Care Professionals (HCPs) provides more in-depth knowledge about the process, for those interested or more regularly involved with clients requesting MAiD.
For HCP's interested in learning about MAiD assessments and/or providing MAiD, the module
Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD): Roles and Responsibilities or Assessors and Providers provides in-depth information into the assessment components, as well as additional requirements for providers.
