Updated information on MAID July 7 2016 from CNPS.

What is the difference between “physician-assisted death” and “medical assistance in dying”?

The term used in the Carter v. Canada decision is “physician-assisted death”. However, recognizing that this process involves the entire health care team, legislators revised the term to “medical assistance in dying” in Bill C-14 to be more inclusive and reflective of actual practice. Now that Bill C-14 has become law, the revised language of MAID is in effect and reflects the participation of the entire health care team in this process.
