An Uncertain Path: Navigating voluntary assisted dying laws in Australia

Voluntary assisted dying laws raise vital questions about our approach to death and suffering as a society.

With the 2017 introduction of voluntary assisted dying laws in Victoria, and Queensland and West Australia now contemplating the same, this longstanding and contentious issue is a priority for State Governments.
