Reflections on Voluntary Assisted Dying in Victoria
09.18.2019 - By SAGE Psychology & Psychiatry
The October 2019 Australasian Psychiatry podcast features an interview with Professor Christopher Ryan of Westmead Hospital, and Professor David Copolov of Monash University, to discuss Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD). The conversation took place the day after their involvement in a panel discussion on the topic at the RANZCP Congress in Cairns. The discussion starts with the difference between VAD and Physician Assisted Dying, and explores the ramifications of the legislation allowing VAD in Victoria, beginning in June 2019.
