MAID - Medical Assistance in Dying: Implications for Transplantation
James Downar, MDCM, MHSc
Palliative Care focuses on improving quality of life and symptom control for people with incurable or life-threatening disease. In some countries patients can receive medical assistance in dying (MAID). This practice raises important ethical, moral and legal issues. Organ donation after circulatory determination of death (DCD) is a widely accepted practice nowadays. Although most people who receive MAID are ineligible to donate their organs, some countries allow this to take place for donors who are eligible. The combination of DCD and MAID raises additional legal and ethical concerns, which patients and clinicians need to be aware of. This presentation will give an overview of the current guidelines and principles in Canada.
