MAiD and the Death Doula Certificate Program

Are you a Death Doula who aspires to support those seeking a medically assisted death?

About the Program

This 2-day training workshop is a Certificate Program that builds on the knowledge and skills learned in your Death Doula training, and is specifically designed to provide insight into the challenges of working with a client who chooses MAiD over a natural death. Home Hospice Association is proud to provide non-judgmental and knowledgeable support to those interested in this line of work.

Conceptualized by the same team that created our Diana Pathway Program, this program draws from our facilitators' personal and professional knowledge and experiences with medically assisted deaths. Collectively, they have combined their skills and resources along with their passion for this topic to offer this one-of-a-kind training program.



To register for this program, you must already be trained as a Death Doula either through HHA or another institution. Proof of certification is required.
