 Medical Assisted Dying - Info from MOHLTC
 

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) has established a toll-free referral support line to help Ontario physicians to arrange for assessment referrals and consultations for patients requesting medical assistance in dying (MAID). This referral support line is operational as of June 6, 2016, pending the voluntary registration of willing physicians.

TO REGISTER: Click here to access a voluntary registration survey.
Physicians are asked to complete the survey and either submit it electronically to MAIDregistration@ontario.ca or by mail to:

MAID Registration
Strategic Policy Branch, Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care
80 Grosvenor Street, 8th Floor
Toronto, Ontario
M7A 1R3

TO ACCESS THE SERVICE:

Clinicians seeking assistance in making a referral for an initial assessment or for a second opinion are asked to call the toll-free number 1-844-243-5880.

Once it is confirmed that the caller is a practicing clinician in Ontario, MOHLTC will use its database of registered clinicians to make a suitable match to another clinician. Once a match is made, MOHLTC will provide the contact information of clinician seeking assistance to the willing clinician.

PRIVACY:

MOHLTC will consider a clinician's name and all information provided to be confidential, and will not disclose this information to anyone except to another clinician to the extent necessary to facilitate a referral, or unless otherwise required by law. No patient information should be provided to the MOHLTC.
