Are assisted dying laws in Victoria are ‘working well’? La Trobe Law School’s Marc Trabsky dives into the complex question.

Marc Trabsky’s (Director of the Centre for Health, Law and Society) article, “Without more detail, it’s premature to say voluntary assisted dying laws in Victoria are ‘working well’” was published this morning on The Conversation.

It responds to the release this week of the Voluntary Assisted Dying Review Board’s report detailing the first six months of the operation of the legislation.

Although Victorian Minister for Health Jenny Mikakos MP said the report indicates the legislation is working as intended, Marc’s article, co-written with Courtney Hempton from Deakin University addresses the need for more detailed data to better assess the operation of the legislation, including whether it is equitable and accessible to those who want to make this choice.
