CMA online and in-house courses on Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD)

April 20, 2017

More and more Canadians are expected to ask a physician about medical assistance in dying (MAiD). In 2016, the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) launched a self-led foundational online MAiD course which helps members understand the basics and have a conversation with their patients.

To help prepare members who are considering offering MAiD to their patients, Joule™ and the CMA have recently launched an advanced facilitated MAiD course. The course is a follow-up to the foundational course and provides comprehensive in-depth education on topics related to medical assistance in dying, as well as advanced practical training for physicians. At the end of this course, you’ll be able to confidently have the conversation with your patients and guide them through the process.

The foundational model is self-led, so space is unlimited, but for the advanced course, space is limited. 

There are only two offerings in 2017 for the advanced course: May 1 and September 18. (Completion of the foundational self-led online course is required.)

The advanced course is also offered in an in-house format. Call toll-free 1.800.663.7336, ext. 8445 or email education@cma.ca for more information.

Joule™ is committed to ensuring that CMA members have what they need to best prepare for MAiD. Learn more.
