Dying to Know Day 2022

Navigating Voluntary Assisted Dying

Thursday 4 August | 7-8:30pm (AEST) | A Go Gentle Australia Dying to Know Day webinar. 

 

Voluntary Assisted Dying – which allows eligible dying people to seek medical assistance to hasten their death – is now legal in all six Australian states and available in Victoria and Western Australia. But simply having the law in place is not enough. We have to know who is eligible, how to access it, and who are the medical practitioners willing to help?

Dying to Know Day

Dying To Know Day is an annual campaign (culminating on 8 August) that empowers Australians at all stages of life to live and die well. 

This year, it is encouraging people to prioritise compassionate conversations and ‘get dead set’ around the reality of death and dying – because it’s going to happen to us all. A priority is to highlight the simple steps people can take around end-of-life planning, which is personal and unique to everyone.
