Medical Assistance in Dying

Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) is a term used to describe a situation where a clinician provides or administers medication that intentionally brings about a patient's death, at the request of the patient.

The patient must be a competent adult, suffering from a "grievous & irremediable medical condition" that causes the person to endure suffering that is intolerable.
