The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario has just posted ’s a revised draft policy for external consultation: “Planning for and Providing Quality End-of-Life Care.”
The draft policy sets out professional expectations of physicians and provides guidance on a range of issues relating to quality end-of-life care, including futility and aid in dying.
The CPSO is inviting feedback from all stakeholders, including members of the medical profession, the public, health system organizations and other health professionals on the draft policy. Comments received by February 2015 will assist in developing a final policy which will be considered for final approval by Council. Several good comments already appear on the online discussion board.
