Summary

The Voluntary Assisted Dying Ministerial Advisory Panel (the Panel) was given the responsibility of developing a safe and compassionate voluntary assisted dying framework for Victoria.

This final report sets out the Panel's recommendations for the framework. It follows from the Panel's interim report which outlined the key themes that have arisen from the consultation process with stakeholders. The proposed framework provides access to voluntary assisted dying for a limited number of adult Victorians who are at the end of their lives and suffering. There are 66 recommendations put forward in the report, which address the details of how voluntary assisted dying would work in practice.
