Research Forum

In the Research Forum, researchers will present peer-reviewed oral abstracts on various aspects of medical assistance in dying. This session will facilitate dissemination and discussion of current scholarly activities investigating MAiD. Potential future research projects and collaborations will also be explored.

Upon completion of the workshop participants will:
