Announcement of consultation and expert advisory group on physician-assisted dying and end of life care

Aug 14, 2015

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario welcomes the establishment of the provincial-territorial expert advisory group and the launch of a broad public consultation on physician assisted dying and end of life care. These issues are extremely important and we need to clearly understand public views and expectations. The results of this work will inform our guidance to the medical profession and ensure patients and their families have the information they need to make decisions that are right for them at the end of life.

Dr. Carol Leet, President
College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario
