Topic 1: Foundations of MAiD in Canada

CAMAP Story

We are the Canadian Association of MAiD Assessors and Providers (MAiD is Medical Assistance in Dying). At its core, our organization it is made up of clinicians who provide MAiD services including assessment for eligibility and the provision of MAiD itself.

While we are predominantly an association of nurse practitioners and physicians (family physicians, hospitalists, internists, anaesthetists, neurologists and more), anyone involved in the work or interested in supporting it is most welcome to join our community. This includes social workers, nurses, care coordinators, pharmacists, nurses, lawyers, researchers, administrators, pastoral care, and more. We are a diverse community from coast to coast to coast.
