Lessons from Tasmania’s journey to legalising VAD

Si Gladman / 28 May 2021

With the push for voluntary assisted dying (VAD)  heating up in several states in early 2021, Mike Gaffney, the Independent MLC for Mersey in Tasmania, presented on the lessons he learnt during the experience of legalising the end-of-life option in his home state.

Mr Gaffney’s End of Life Choices (Voluntary Assisted Dying) Bill 2020 successfully passed through the Tasmanian parliament in March 2021.

All the more reason.
