Ministry of Health updates medical assistance in dying forms

posted May 29, 2018​

The Ministry of Health has introduced new and updated medical assistance in dying forms and accompanying instruction documents.

These can be found on the government of B.C.’s website here.

Most notable to practitioners, assessors and coordinators, is the revision of the patient request record (form 1632) which has moved the patient confirmation record (final consent before administration) to a separate new form (form 1637). As well, new instruction documents have been developed to help support patients and providers fill in the medical assistance in dying provincial forms.

New pharmacy protocol and medication administration records, introducing secobarbital as a second oral option, is also now available for providers and pharmacists. Nurse practitioners may contact their health authority’s Care Coordination Centre to obtain a copy.
