Medical Assistance In Dying (NL)

Medical Assistance In Dying (NL)

On June 17, 2016, the Parliament of Canada passed bill C-14 which allows eligible Canadian adults to request medical assistance in dying (MAiD). The passage of the bill was the culmination of an ongoing debate on the right of people to control the time and circumstances of their own death. 

This module will outline the Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) process as it currently stands in Newfoundland and Labrador as part of the spectrum of end of life options.

Course Registration

Medical Assistance In Dying (NL)

MDcme (on behalf of its consortium partners) protects the privacy of personal and other information regarding course registrants. MDcme will not release personally identifiable information to a third party without an individual's consent, except such information as is required for reporting purposes to the body or bodies accrediting this course for continuing education study credits. MDcme collects and reviews all course data (registration/course completion statistics, pre/post-test and satisfaction survey) to determine if a course meets participants' learning needs. Data is reviewed to improve existing courses and to inform the development of future course offerings. If an evaluation report is provided to a third party, all data is summarized, with no participant identifying information included. Given the importance and potential impact of some courses, evaluation data may be presented and/or published in academic venues. Again, this data is always summarized, with no identifying information included.

At times, a contributing/partner organization involved in a course may request individual participant data from pre/post or evaluation surveys for quality improvement or educational research purposes. This data would be de-identified so would not be associated with any personally identifiable information such as your name, profession, city, etc.

If requested by a contributing/partner organization:

Do you consent to the release of your individual, de-identified pre/post or evaluation survey data for the purposes of quality improvement or educational research?
