Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) Survey 
We are approaching you as a member of the Canadian Psychological Association and/or one of the Provincial/Territorial Psychology Associations to complete a survey on your views and experience on the recent change to the criminal code that allows for Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID).   

The goals of this survey are to determine psychologists’ views of current MAID legislation, the degree of their participation in MAID assessments, and their opinions regarding possible extensions of MAID to patient groups not covered under the current legislation.
