The applicant gets to decide who they want by their side at the time of their death. “Depending on the patient and what MAID means to them, the moment at which MAID is administered can be experienced between only the patient and the doctor, or it can be a shared event: if this is the patient’s wish, relatives can be present when MAID is administered, if they wish to attend. Furthermore, in accordance with the wishes of the patient, a nurse, and other members of the interdisciplinary team, or even another physician, may be present.”
