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.
