The protocol, questionnaires, and procedures for implementing the QPR in the multidisciplinary pain clinics of the CHUM, MUHC
, and CHUS were approved in 2008 by the REB of the CHUM which acted as the central ethic committee in charge of obtaining approval from the local ones.
Manuel Borod, director of the Division of Supportive and Palliative Care Programs at the MUHC
, argued that according to the World Health Organization, palliative care "does not hasten death" and that MUHC
's policy of prohibiting euthanasia within the confines of the palliative care clinic "did not seem unreasonable when we were creating our policy that a patient on a palliative care unit within an institution could be transferred to another room." Barrette, who claims it is within his power to force the hospital to change policy, called the ban on euthanasia in the palliative care clinic "totally illegal" because hospital personnel cannot decide which departments may offer medical aid to die.
The study was approved by the respective Ethics Committee at each of the clinics and at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC
