Role of the board

Meet the inaugural members.

The board reviews and monitors voluntary assisted dying activities in Victoria.

Its responsibilities include:

  • promoting and ensuring compliance with the Voluntary Assisted Dying Act 2017
  • reporting to Parliament and referring any potential issues or breaches to the appropriate authorities
  • collecting data about voluntary assisted dying
  • providing information to the community while maintaining the privacy of individuals involved.

The board reviews all assessments and forms submitted for voluntary assisted dying retrospectively.

The board does not:

  • grant or refuse applications for voluntary assisted dying
  • participate as coordinating or consulting medical practitioners in voluntary assisted dying assessments.

We are currently working on a model for processing data or research partnership requests made to the board. Check back here for updates.
