Not in force
29.18. After carrying out the examination required by section 29.13, 29.14 or 29.15, the competent professional must inform the patient who made the advance request, the members of the care team responsible for the patient and, where applicable, every trusted third person designated in the request of the professional’s conclusions.
The professional must ensure that the process for administering medical aid in dying continues only where the professional concludes that the patient is exhibiting, on a recurring basis, the clinical manifestations related to their illness that they described in the request, and that the patient’s medical state gives cause to believe, based on the information at the professional’s disposal and according to their clinical judgment, that the patient is experiencing enduring and unbearable physical or psychological suffering that cannot be relieved under conditions considered tolerable.
