Voluntary Assisted Dying - Victoria

The Victorian Government believes all Victorians are entitled to quality end of life care, which relieves pain and suffering, and provides compassionate support to family, friends and carers.

On 29 November 2017, the Victorian Parliament passed the Voluntary Assisted Dying Act 2017.

From 19 June 2019, Victorians at the end of life who are suffering and who meet strict eligibility criteria will be able to request access to voluntary assisted dying.

We have reviewed and assessed which units of competency were affected by the new legislation, and have updated those units accordingly. When you place your next order, whether it be for print copies or eBooks, you will receive the latest version which includes the relevant updated information for that unit.
