UAlberta receives federal funding to conduct review of MAID experiences


The University of Alberta has received $560K over two years from the Government of Canada to conduct the first comprehensive national review of how medical assistance in dying (MAID) is provided. The funding will also be used to evaluate individual and family experiences of MAID programs. “Medical assistance in dying is a complex and deeply personal issue for many Canadians,” said Canadian Minister of Health Jean-Yves Duclos. “The University of Alberta’s project will provide valuable data regarding MAID delivery across the country and the experiences of Canadians who request MAID.”
