Education Day 2016: A Forum on Medical Assistance in Dying
Thank you to everyone who attended our annual Education Day on Sept. 23, 2016. The day featured discussion on the global context of medical assistance in dying and the current state in Canada and Manitoba. We discussed terminology, ethical issues like conscientious objection and the implications on nursing practice of implementing medically assisted dying in Canada.
