There are a few additional safeguards specific to BC:
1 The physician or NP providing MAiD and/or providing the opinion that the person meets the MAiD criteria are independent if they:
are not a mentor to the other practitioner or responsible for supervising their work;
do not know or believe that they are a beneficiary under the will of the person making the request, or a recipient, in any other way, of a financial or other material benefit resulting from that person's death, other than standard compensation for their services relating to the request; or
do not know or believe that they are connected to the other practitioner or to the person making the request in any other way that would affect their objectivity.
