Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: MAiD is not driven by socioeconomic vulnerability or poor access to palliative care

(Canadian Medical Association Journal) A new study of people who received medical assistance in dying (MAiD) in Ontario found that about three-quarters were cared for by palliative care practitioners at the time of their request for MAiD, and MAiD recipients were younger, wealthier and more likely to be married than the general population at time of death. These findings dispel concerns that MAiD requests are driven by lack of access to palliative care services or by socioeconomic vulnerabilities.
