On November 1, 2018, the federal government’s Regulations for the Monitoring of Medical Assistance in Dying come into force.  A Guidance Document was developed by the Ministry of Health for practitioners in Saskatchewan, and the reporting forms in the CPSS Policy: Medical Assistance in Dying have been updated to reflect these changes. 

Who needs to report?
Physician and nurse practitioners who have received a request for medical assistance in dying in writing and encounter one of the six scenarios have an obligation to report certain information where MAID was not provided and where MAID was provided.
