Medical assistance in dying for cancer patients one year after legalization: a collaborative approach at a comprehensive cancer centre



Medical assistance in dying for cancer patients one year after legalization: a collaborative approach at a comprehensive cancer centre



Current Oncology 25(5): E486



Medical assistance in dying (maid) is a new medical service in Canada. Access to maid for patients with advanced cancer can be daunting during periods of declining health near the end of life. In this report, we describe a collaborative approach between the centralized coordination service and a regional cancer centre as an effective strategy for enabling interdisciplinary care delivery and enhancing patient-centred care at the end of the patient's cancer journey.
