Victorian Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill discussion paper

The Victorian Government has established a Ministerial Advisory Panel to continue the consultation process in preparation for introducing assisting legislation later this year.

The panel is engaging key stakeholders with relevant expertise through forums and in-depth interviews to inform our advice to government on the development and implementation of voluntary assisted dying legislation.

The aim of this discussion paper is to seek feedback on key issues in developing a legislative framework, and each section asks respondents to address specific questions in their response.

Please note that the panel will not consider feedback that expresses an opinion for or against assisted dying. The panel is seeking feedback that is based on people’s expertise and experience to provide perspectives on the access, safeguards and practical considerations in creating a compassionate and safe assisted dying framework.

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
