Canadian physicians are initiating conversations about medically assisted dying (#MAiD) when they are most vulnerable, shattering patient trust and safety. This post includes some resources and links to doctors + Orgs that advocate for dignity in life and treatment.
Thanks to everyone who has privately reached out via IG, Twitter and email.

One such platform is No Options, No Choice, which has some fascinating videos and insight on end-of-life care. Check it out if you want to keep digging and learning:
