Guidance for Health Professionals

It is important for all health-care providers in Manitoba to be aware of the legal requirements and processes associated with medical assistance in dying, and their professional responsibilities. While health-care providers are not obligated to provide or participate in medical assistance in dying, all health-care providers have professional responsibilities to their patients.

The provincial MAiD team has developed a Guideline for health-care providers (document currently being revised).

Health-care providers should also be aware of their responsibilities under Federal reporting requirements.


NOTE: Physicians in Manitoba must provide any patient inquiring about medical assistance in dying with timely access to a resource that can provide accurate information about MAiD and make available the patient’s chart and relevant information.
