Video Alert: Voluntary Assisted Dying Update - November 2019

Felicity Iredale

In June 2019, Victoria became the first state to legalise voluntary assisted dying (VAD). Health services and their staff will inevitably be involved in providing care to patients who wish to access the scheme.

In this video update, Associate Felicity Iredale covers:

  • the key aspects of the VAD scheme in Victoria;
  • the role of health services under the legislation; and
  • what health services should be doing to ensure they are equipped to handle requests for VAD.


If you would like to speak to us about VAD, or any other matter, please contact Michael Gorton AM on 03 9609 1505 or Felicity Iredale on 03 8602 7254.
