/ Dying to Tell / Health / Where Do We Go From Here? Voluntary Assisted Dying in Victoria

 

In 2017 we launched Dying to Tell with an in depth look at the proposed Voluntary Assisted Dying legislation. This legislation passed in November 2017 and from 19th June 2019 Victorians will be able to request access to voluntary assisted dying.

We revisit this important topic with Julian Gardner AM (formerly the Public Advocate for Victoria) who has been part of an implementation team and will talk about this along with Kass Hall – a terminal cancer patient and Go Gentle advocate who will be directly affected by the legislation.

If anything in this podcast has raised issues of grief, stress or personal crisis, both Lifeline and the Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement provide telephone support and counselling 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
