Finding support to seek voluntary assisted dying - Australian Centre for Health Law Research
This consumer brochure from QUT’s Australian Centre for Health Law Research provides practical tips to help people who are seeking information about voluntary assisted dying (VAD), but are not sure where to start.
This brochure is based on new research published by Professor Ben White, Ruthie Jeanneret and Professor Lindy Willmott, which shows that some people who want VAD have found it difficult to find someone who can help them.
Some people may not even know VAD may be an option for them. This remains a particular issue in Victoria because doctors are not allowed to raise the issue of VAD with their patients.
