Voluntary assisted dying – what do the new laws mean for the Albany Community Hospice

The Rural Clinical School of Western Australia in collaboration with the Albany Community Hospice are undertaking a research study to explore a range of ways that Hospice could respond to the enactment of the Voluntary Assisted Dying legislation. The study will explore the views of Hospice staff, volunteers and supporters as to possible directions that the Hospice may take in response to community needs and expectations when developing the policies required by this new law.
