How can I talk about voluntary assisted dying with my family?


For some people, death and dying are still taboo and difficult to talk about. But it’s important that we do, so we can plan ahead and make the right choices for us. Visit Advance Care Planning Australia for resources to help you start the conversation.

Ideally, your family will respect whatever choice you make. However, if you prefer, you can keep the conversation confidential between you and your doctor. Just like any other aspect of your healthcare and treatment, you do not have to share details if you don’t want to.
