Join CAFP on Tuesday, March 1, 2022 from 6:00-7:00 PM for an educational webinar on Incorporating Medical Aid in Dying (MAID) into Family Medicine Residency Training. Program directors, interested faculty, and residents are welcome. Medical aid in dying (MAID) is a service available to patients at the end of their lives and is designed to reduce suffering and improve patient agency.
MAID has been legal in California since 2016 and as of January 1, 2022 changes to the law make it more accessible. Primary care physicians are oftentimes the ones fielding and fulfilling MAID requests from their patients, yet training is generally lacking. This session will be led by Drs. Ryan Spielvogel, and Taylor Duke from Sutter Family Medicine Residency Program in Sacramento.
