Topic: Experiences of Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) for Racialized Canadians.

Overview: Medical assistance in dying (MAID) has recently been legalized in Canada. My dissertation research will explore experiences of racialized Canadians with MAID. My proposed doctoral work will help us understand what assisted dying means to racialized Canadians, who are often left out of local and national discourses. It will provide a previously unexplored, qualitative and in-depth look at how assisted dying plays out in everyday lives of people who are thinking about, requesting, or receiving assisted dying. .
