HHA The Diana Pathway MAiD

Diana was passionate about individuals empowerment to make decisions that reflected their values and preferences for individual healthcare when faced with a terminal illness.  

Are You a Death Doula Who Aspires to Support Those Seeking a Medically Assisted Death?

This workshop builds on the knowledge and skills learned in your Death Doula training. It provides insight into the challenges of working with a client who chooses MAiD over a natural death. You will learn how to deliver special support around legacy, death planning, vigiling and grief that Death Doulas are uniquely qualified to provide. Specific care before, during and after the provision will be taught.

The Home Hospice Association is proud to provide non-judgmental and knowledgeable support to those interested in this line of work. The team responsible for creating The Diana Pathway Workshop brings their personal and professional knowledge and experiences with medically assisted deaths. They collectively and lovingly melded together a common calling and common passion to launch this training program.

Prerequisite: Must have been trained as a Death Doula through HHA or another institution. Proof of certification is required.
