I disagree with the policy CPSA is considering that would require doctors to refer patients for every type of medical procedure, even “procedures” like euthanasia that many doctors may not want to participate in. Referring for a procedure is a form of participation, and this policy change could push many people out of the profession. I value doctors being able to refer or not according to their conscience. The system is currently working fine. Forcing doctors to refer for procedures they disagree with will force doctors out of the profession or out of Alberta, making access to physicians increasingly more difficult. Please reconsider moving forward with this policy.
