Medical Assistance In Dying (MAID)

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​MAID Information For Patients

Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) is available at UHN. While end-of-life choices are very personal decisions, there are some common reasons why patients request MAID. Some patients may wish to:

  • Be free from pain and suffering
  • Control when and how death occurs
  • Avoid poor and declining quality of life

Whether you would like to understand more about MAID at UHN, or have specific questions about the process, our website offers the information you are looking for.

For staff

MA​ID is provided at UHN. To ensure patient safety and support our staff members, we have developed a dedicated section​ to help teach you what you need to know about MAID.
