One thought on “CMAJ: Line between acts and omissions blurred, euthanasia critics argue

  1. This is an excellent article!
    The language of the current court appeal in British Columbia only specifies “general supervision by a qualified health professional”, not a medical doctor, or a screening panel or a palliative care team. It could be almost any health care provider. There is a list online of which professions in Canada are considered qualified health professionals, who could therefore be involved , if legalized, in assisted suicide. I think this would create a very dangerous situation for health care service delivery in Canada.
