A physician’s view of MAID in Canada

A physician’s view of MAID in Canada

Dr. Lianne Yoshida has been a family physician for 17 years in Nova Scotia, Canada. As of December 2016, she had helped four patients end their suffering. “When families have watched their loved one suffer for a long time, both the patients and families have been so grateful and relieved…they’ve already made the hard decision and they are ready. I feel honoured and privileged to provide the service.” Said Dr. Yoshida. “Most people will die naturally and unassisted, it’s really important that we keep MAID in perspective.” she added.
