MAiD Research, Grants and Literature

CAMAP values quality, evidence-based research on MAiD to help us better understand this important and sometimes complex new field of health care.

We support the research community by offering research grants and hosting Research Forums twice a year where researchers share their current work.

Research on MAiD is continually being done throughout Canada.  One of CAMAP’s founders and current director of the board, Dr. Ellen Wiebe, maintains a list that is updated on a regular basis. Visit her site, Hemlock AID to view this list. If you know of any research that should be added to this list, please email us and we will ensure it is considered.

CAMAP Grants

CAMAP has committed to supporting MAiD research through financial grants, as possible, for new or on-going research projects as well as for knowledge transfer.  

Research grants are available between $1,000 and $3,000 (primarily $1,500 each) and are meant to off-set the cost of research assistants, transcriptions, or similar.

Knowledge transfer grants are available between $1,000 and $2,500 (primarily $1,000 each) and are meant to off-set the cost of publishing fees as well as other methods of knowledge transfer.
