The federal regulations were put in place to establish a monitoring and reporting system for medical assistance in dying. The regulations address what information must be provided, how and when it must be provided, to whom, and its use and disposal. The information collected will be used to publish annual reports on medical assistance in dying in Canada, including the number of requests received, the number of medically assisted deaths and the number of people found ineligible.
AHS will act on behalf of the Medical Assistance in Dying Regulatory Review Committee in terms of collection of data and collation under the Ministerial Order within prescribed timeframes. The AHS Care Coordination Service is the point of contact for ALL reporting in Alberta.
