How to develop successful legislation like Voluntary Assisted Dying
Voluntary Assisted Dying was not legal in an Australian state until legislation passed in Victoria in 2017 – a change which represented a major shift in individual autonomy. Aussie researchers have described the process that led to the historic legislation in a new paper, including the involvement of the Victorian community and extensive consultation and research. Through documenting this process, researchers hope to inform future successful legislative changes.
