The health care practitioners who have taken a stand for compassionate choice at end of life.

Home / Team Members / Clinicians Advisory Council

The Clinicians Advisory Council (CAC) is comprised of over 30 clinicians who have volunteered to serve as supporters and advisors to Dying With Dignity Canada (DWDC). They reflect the voices of health care providers across the country.

Most members of this group are also medical assistance in dying (MAID) practitioners, and some are family physicians and nurse practitioners, or work in palliative care. DWDC benefits greatly from their lens as care providers. They deliver important insights into the realities of end-of-life care and MAID –both the progress and the challenges.

Key sections of the CAC mandate include:

  • To provide advice on medical matters relating to DWDC’s vision and mission, in particular issues such as Advance Care Planning, patient rights and medical assistance in dying
  • To serve as media and public spokespersons on issues relating to improving quality of dying, expanding end-of-life choices, and helping Canadians avoid unwanted suffering
  • To assist in the preparation and promotion of policy materials
  • To assist in the drafting and preparation of DWDC policies and submissions to government or other bodies regarding improving quality of dying, expanding end-of-life choices, and helping Canadians avoid unwanted suffering
