Poster: Senior Australians’ views on voluntary assisted dying


National Seniors Australia researched older Australians’ views about voluntary assisted dying in our annual National Seniors Social Survey in February 2021.

Between 2019 and 2022 all states in Australia passed legislation enabling people with a terminal disease to access voluntary assisted dying (VAD) provisions. This context prompted us – researchers from non-profit advocacy organisation National Seniors Australia – to explore older Australians’ views about VAD in our annual National Seniors Social Survey in February 2021. At that time Victoria, Western Australia, Tasmania and South Australia had legalised VAD and Queensland was debating it.
