Voluntary Assisted Dying Forum
AboutOn 1 Jan 2023 VAD becomes law in Qld. This has implications for anyone volunteering or working in aged care, hospitals, mental health clinics, or simply offering care to a friend. This event is designed to give you information about the laws so you can work or volunteer with confidence in this space. We will also cover approaches to care if you conscientiously object to VAD and how you can do this with grace.
