Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID)

These resources are intended to supplement, not circumvent existing regulatory body requirements or institutional processes that have already been implemented.

The first MAID resource was developed by the Post MD Education department at University of Toronto with leadership from Dr. Dori Seccareccia, Dr. Irene Ying and Dr. Elie Grzeda as faculty authors.  It is intended to provide faculty with educational resources as they lead resident teaching sessions about MAID and the clinician’s role in its implementation.

The MAID Educational Resource Kit includes:
