The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC), in partnership with Joule, a Canadian Medical Association company, is providing medical assistance in dying training for Ontario physicians and nurse practitioners in an effort to strengthen the knowledge
base for this new service across the province.

To that end, you are invited to attend a 1-day medical assistance in dying training session
to be held in Sudbury on Friday, September 29, 2017. The MOHLTC is funding the training, therefore you will not be required to pay a registration fee. Travel and accommodation costs are not covered. The specific location details will be determined shortly and provided
to course registrants directly. If you cannot attend the face-to-face session, additional online, facilitated courses will be available.

Course Details
Learners will engage with subject matter experts in key areas of this multi-faceted medical service including the legal and regulatory aspects, considerations around issues of consent and capacity, and the technical provision of medical assistance in dying. Case studies will be
used to help learners integrate the acquired knowledge of these issues with practical scenarios they may encounter as they engage in conversations on medical assistance in dying with patients.
At the end of the course, learners will be able to:
  • Integrate and fulfill ethical principles and legal and regulatory requirements in the care of patients requesting medical assistance in dying.
  • Evaluate competency especially with vulnerable populations.
  • Engage in a complex conversation with patients and their families at end of life.
  • Provide the technical aspects of medical assistance in dying in a compassionate manner.
  • Self-monitor and reflect to assess impact in personal and professional life.
  • Access support around self-care.
