The Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association is offering Continuing Medical Education sessions on Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD).The NLMA will be delivering the session in Corner Brook March 10 and Happy Valley Goose Bay April 28.
Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) is an option now available in this province as it is in the rest of Canada. Family physicians Dr. Sarah Clancy, Dr. Aaron McKim and Dr. Francois de Wet have partnered with the RHAs and the NLMA to offer an advanced teaching program on medical assistance in dying (MAiD) to support competency for this new service.
The core education of the program will be offered in a one-day session of Advanced MAiD training. The session considers the unique challenges of physicians in Newfoundland and Labrador who will be actively involved in the provision of care in MAiD cases from request to completion of the case. Following the training, providers and assessors will have access to a toolbox of resources, as well as a network of support throughout the province.
Please note it is one full day and participants are eligible to claim 6 CME credits through the College of Family Physicians Canada. Nurses, nurse practitioners and pharmacists are welcome to attend. You can register by visiting this link: http://nlma.nl.ca/nlma/forms/maid/
