Additional Info

Medical Assistance In Dying (MAID) is a program that allows terminally ill patients to access the assistance of a physician to control the time and circumstances of their death. See links under #Program Details for more info.

See Deceased patients#General instructions for deceased patients and Guideline for coding organ donation after death.

Collection Instructions for MAID

  • Do not code this if the patient simply has a MAID consult, even if they agree to have MAID in the near future. Code it only once the assistance has been provided
  • Code this for patients who are admitted to your ward/unit and either:
    • receive this assistance on the ward/unit
    • receive MAID after being moved somewhere else the same way we would consider other Visits to temporary locations - ie since they die at that location, code Dispo as the appropriate "Died - ..." option ; collecting it this way will ensure that sites like STB that don't allow this on site will be reflected in our data the same way as other sites that provide this onsite.
