Description

Over two decades of Dutch experience with voluntary assisted dying can inform deliberations about the nature of a regulatory framework in Australian jurisdictions.

This article considers three issues from this perspective:

1. Whether the Government permit required in Victoria prior to providing voluntary assisted dying is defensible

2. Whether the Victorian preference for self-administration over practitioner administration is sound

3. The need for transparency about how voluntary assisted dying systems operate including research.
