Quebec's Commission on MAiD Misses the Mark on Mental Disorders
Health, Law, Social Policy, Assisted Dying, Québec, Canadian Politics, Medical Care, Mental Health
One of the issues under scrutiny earlier last year in Quebec was whether individuals whose sole underlying medical condition is a mental disorder should be permitted to access medical assistance in dying (MAiD). In December, the Commission spéciale sur l’évolution de la loi concernant les soins fin de vie, convened by the Quebec National Assembly, published its report after seven months of deliberations. The report contains future directions for the practice of MAiD in Quebec.
