Following feedback from Canadians, experts, practitioners, stakeholders, Indigenous groups, provinces and territories, changes were made to Medical Assistance in Dying legislation which took effect on March 17, 2021.
In response, the CRNS has revised and updated the Guidelines for RN Involvement in Medical Assistance in Dying and the Guidelines for NP Involvement in Medical Assistance in Dying.
The new document Medical Assistance in Dying identifies the changes to the legislation as well as combines the two previous documents into one document. The CRNS is seeking feedback from members, stakeholders and the public related to the new document. Please access the document here. Please access the survey questions here. The CRNS would appreciate any feedback by July 13, 2021, at 4:30 pm.
Final approval of the document is through the CRNS Executive Director and CRNS Council. The document will take effect on the day of CRNS Council approval.
Questions or comments are welcome and can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
