Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD) is now legal in Queensland under the Voluntary Assisted Dying Act 2021 (Qld). It became available to eligible Queenslanders on 1 January 2023.
VAD gives people who meet eligibility criteria, are suffering and dying, the option to ask for medical assistance to end their life.
Parkinson’s Queensland Inc. (PQI) acknowledges the introduction of Voluntary Assisted Dying in Queensland however our organisation, its staff and volunteers do not provide advice of any kind on Voluntary Assisted Dying.
Information on VAD and the process can be found on the Queensland Health website or by speaking to a General Practitioner.
