The development of the Canadian MAiD Curriculum Project wouldn’t be possible without the passionate and dedicated efforts of many different health care practitioners, providers, assessors, care coordinators, researchers, and staff, along with the support of a variety of organizations.
With genuine gratitude and appreciation, we recognize and celebrate the many people who have participated in the project along the way.
Reflection and Resilience: Mental health experts developed evidence-based models, practices and resources that are proven to reduce distress, enhance focus, safeguard resilience, and promote professional health well-being. Reflective practices designed to address the social and emotional challenges of MAiD, to increase clinician engagement and satisfaction, are woven throughout all modules and collected in a free handbook, “Reflection and Resilience Backpack: Resources and Practices to Support Your Journey as a MAiD Clinician.”
