Julie Ali Why not focus on good palliative care instead of death by doctor? I guess it's all about cost savings. No one talks about the problem of forced DNR on handicapped citizens as well. Why not? It's an important area for public discourse. When we have handicapped citizens who are seen as providing consent when the consent is questionable and doctors willing to put DNR orders on their medical files for years, something is off in Alberta. We have strict rules for death by doctor where folks without insight (capacity) aren't allowed this option but no sort of legislation governing DNR orders of our most defenceless citizens. Folks need to know the problems which our family has experienced and then ask for protection for handicapped citizens.

If you're in Medicine Hat on February 15 be sure to check out the event discussing Medical Assistance in Dying put on by our Palliser Chapter.
Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) is the topic for a Friends of Medicare event Feb.15 at 7…
