Course Description

Hours: 12

The impact of the decision to pursue Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) has a ripple effect that extends beyond the death itself, for the individual, their family, community and healthcare team. Addressing the everyday issues and complex needs of all individuals touched by MAiD is essential. This workshop will seek to enhance participants’ knowledge and skill-base when engaging individuals and their support networks in navigating the MAiD journey. Intermixed with real life stories and informative videos, it will provide you with an overview of MAiD, information on the psychosocial aspects impacting the decision to request (and access) MAiD, particularly the grief and bereavement process, and highlight ways that we can mitigate the challenges of supporting individuals through MAiD.
