Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID)

Covenant Health Policy on Medical Assistance in Dying

Covenant Health will support persons in our care who seek more information regarding options, including palliative and hospice care, but will not participate in or provide medical assistance in dying.

Extensive stakeholder input has informed the most current version of our official Covenant Health Policy - Responding to Requests for Medical Assistance in Dying.  The policy is consistent with the Health Ethics Guide, our foundational ethics resource, and informed by our clinical experience and the Catholic moral tradition and teaching.
