Paula Shelton appointed to Voluntary Assisted Dying Review Board

Paula Shelton appointed to Voluntary Assisted Dying Review Board

The Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill was passed by the Victorian Government in November 2017, making Victoria the first state to pass such laws.

In July 2018, a Voluntary Assisted Dying Review Board was appointed comprising of legal experts, health practitioners and administrators, researchers, carers and the community. The Board will, over the next 12 months, develop the highest standards of oversight and reporting, including how cases will be reviewed. It will also outline appropriate procedures for mandatory reporting by health practitioners and work with the experts to develop guidelines, protocols and training for clinicians.

Adviceline Injury Lawyers are proud to announce that Special Counsel Paula Shelton has been appointed to the Board and will serve a six-year term, reviewing the Act after five years.

Paula said she is delighted to have been appointed to the Board, the creation of which is an important next step in the implementation of these historic laws.

The legislation will come into effect in June 2019.
