Government accepts recommendation to legalise assisted dying

Government accepts recommendation to legalise assisted dying

A report tabled in Parliament in June 2016 recommended the introduction of euthanasia (assisted dying) legislation in Victoria and sought additional resources for palliative care services, particularly in regional and rural areas. The Government has accepted the recommendations made in the report, and it is understood that on Thursday the Government will announce the introduction of legislation next year. The issue will further be put to a conscience vote. If legislation is introduced, we would hope to see it provide a clear decision making framework centred around the patient's wishes, while also providing sufficient protection to vulnerable Victorians.
