Medical Assistance in dying: navigating new legislative terrain and supporting family grief Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID), the practice of intentionally ending the life of a patient at their request to alleviate suffering, has been legal in Canada since 2016. In 2021, changes to Canada’s MAID laws are resulting in significant changes to nursing practice.
