Medical Assistance in Dying – Where are We At and What Does it Mean for Me? That’s the topic Erin Wolff will tackle on Saturday, May 6 at the Pharmacy Association of Saskatchewan’s (PAS) annual conference in Saskatoon.
Her presentation will provide an overview of MAID (Medical Assistance in Dying) legislation in Canada, and will include a discussion of outstanding issues, new developments and how the legislation may affect pharmacy practice.
The larger theme for the 2017 PAS conference is “Portraits of a Healthy Saskatchewan.” Conference participants will reflect on the many diverse populations in the province and explore how to better understand and care for them. Speakers will share tools and insight to improve knowledge and relationships between patients and their health-care providers.
Keynote speakers include:
- Diane Smylie and Michèle Parent-Bergeron, “Indigenous Cultural Safety: Understanding the Concept and Changing the Focus”
- Pierre Battah, “Strengthening Leaders for a Healthier Saskatchewan”
