MOHLTC MAiD Care Coordination Service
Doctors or nurse practitioners who are unable or unwilling to provide medical assistance in dying can also contact the care coordination service in order to refer their patients to doctors or nurse practitioners who can provide these services. Pharmacists who are unable or unwilling to dispense medical assistance in dying drugs can also contact the care coordination service to make a referral.
This service will also support patient access to medical assistance in dying by helping clinicians connect with a:
- Doctor or nurse practitioner who can provide the second assessment that is needed to confirm that a patient meets all the eligibility criteria as set out in the federal legislation.
- Community pharmacist who will dispense the drugs needed for medical assistance in dying.
- Doctor or nurse practitioner who will prescribe or administer the drugs required for medical assistance in dying, if needed.
The care coordination service can be reached by toll free by calling 1-866-286-4023. The service is available Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm EST in English and French (translations for other languages can also be requested). TTY services are also available at 1-844-953-3350.
