End-of-Life Care: Medical-Legal issues

18 Jan 2016 3:48 PM | CAGP (Administrator)

Many physicians have to deal with end-of-life care, and consequently CAGP members should be familiar with the associated medical-legal issues. While there are other matters related to end-of-life care such as withholding and withdrawing treatment, this handout , provided by the CMPA, focuses on end-of-life issues that are specific to physician-assisted death, including conscientious objection, advance directives, consent and access to palliative care.

Le Collège des Médecins du Québec a aussi publié des documents complets sur ces sujets (aide médicale à mourir, sédation palliative en fin de vie, soins médicaux dans les derniers jours de la vie), qui sont disponibles pour ses membres sur le site web www.cmq.org.

PLEASE NOTE: The CAGP cannot provide patients with the names of physicians providing care to patients. The Colleges of Physicians and Surgeons in most Canadian provinces and territories maintain a website for patients to find a physician by specialty. A list of these governing bodies is available on the Federation of Medical Regulatory Authorities of Canada’s website.
