Feedback Needed on Standards - Consultation Extended
March 14, 2023
The CRNA regularly asks for input from the public as it develops and revises the standards and guidelines to ensure they are evidence informed and align with best practice.
On March 9, 2023, legislation to extend the temporary exclusion of eligibility for persons suffering solely from a mental illness received royal assent and immediately came into force. As a result, persons whose sole underlying medical condition is mental illness and who meet all other eligibility criteria will now be eligible for MAID in Canada as of March 17, 2024.
Due to this change, the CRNA will be extending its timeframe for consultation on the draft of Medical Assistance in Dying Standards of Practice for Nurse Practitioners to April 16 at 11:59 p.m.
Thank you to those who have already provided us feedback; however, you are welcome to use the extended consultation time to provide any additional feedback.
