Dying with Dignity in Australia is a term that refers to the right of terminally ill or suffering people to end their lives peacefully and legally with the help of a doctor. It is also known as Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD).
Different states and territories have different laws and regulations regarding VAD and each has an organisation which provides information, education, support and resources to people who are interested in VAD or end-of-life choices.
