New Reporting Obligations for MAiD
New Federal reporting requirements for clinicians starting Nov. 1, 2018
Whether you are providing medical assistance in dying (MAiD) or not, new federal regulations are taking effect Nov. 1, 2018 that may impact you. If you receive a patient request for MAiD in writing, it will trigger
mandatory reporting requirements in most circumstances
The OCFP participated in a call with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and Health Canada last week to get an update about the new requirements. This presentation is included below. We recognize the added administrative pressure for reporting on your current workload. As well, questions remain about the new reporting requirements, including whether physicians will be remunerated.
We welcome any questions or concerns you may have about the new regulations as you review and implement them in your practice.
The Health Canada link provides detail on the scenarios that require additional reporting, timelines for reporting, and penalties for failing to provide this information.
We are working closely with the OMA to clarify certain aspects of the regulation for family physicians, and will keep you informed as new information becomes available.
