Voluntary Assisted Dying: What general practice needs to know | Bendigo
December 5, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The rapport GPs build with their patients over years creates an ideal setting for end-of-life planning and care. GPs often have contextual knowledge of the patient and their family. Trusting, long-term GP-patient relationships can help facilitate timely discussions about needs and preferences in the context of various end-of-life scenarios. In Victoria, on 19 June 2019, the Voluntary Assisted Dying Act (2017) came into effect. These sessions aim to improve understanding of voluntary assisted dying within the general practice environment.
This session is also scheduled to take place in Wodonga and Shepparton (see calendar).
