Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill discussion paper


Following  the Parliamentary Committee's Inquiry into end of life choices, the Government has appointed a Ministerial Advisory Panel, made up of clinical, legal, consumer, health administrator and palliative care experts, to develop voluntary assisted dying legislation for introduction into Parliament in 2017.

You are invited to provide feedback on the key issues being considered by the Ministerial Advisory Panel. Please note that feedback that expresses an opinion for or against assisted dying will not be considered by the panel.

The key issues are provided the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill discussion paper, along with a series of questions to consider and guide discussion. Your feedback will inform the development of the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill.

The closing date for feedback on this discussion paper is Monday 10 April 2017. Responses should be submitted via Assisteddying.frameworkresponses@dhhs.vic.gov.au.
