Palliative Care And MAiD: Co-Existing In The New Environment Survey Report

Author(s)Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association
YearNovember 2018

CHPCA Created this report is to share insight into the lived experience of health care workers in Canada who perform or are exposed to Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) through their work. The need for this information comes from an absence of data previous and subsequent to the legalization of MAiD in June of 2016.

The report also provides a snapshot of the psychosocial supports available within health care organizations where MAiD is administered. A survey was developed by the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA) during the summer of 2017 and was distributed to almost 3,000 registered members/associates and affiliates of CHPCA.
