A recent study in the U.S shows that more Physicians are voicing their support for Physician Assisted Dying. With public support up to 80% in Australian States and Territories we hope that more of OUR Physicians will follow suit to respect the wishes of their patients in States and Territories In which VAD has been & will be legislated for.

They study by Medscape shows majority support for medical aid in dying in a survey of 5000 physicians. Not only is support rising within the industry, but opposition is dropping. The first national physician poll since the COVID-19 healthcare crisis started reaching record numbers in the United States shows that doctors nationwide in the US support medical aid in dying by a 2-1 margin, growing by nearly double digits over the last 10 years.
