Event description

Go Gentle Australia and VADANZ (Voluntary Assisted Dying Australia & NZ) present the inaugural Voluntary Assisted Dying National Conference in Sydney on 27-28 Sept 2023. Join the growing community of voluntary assisted dying (VAD) health professionals, policymakers, peak bodies and health advocacy organisations to share, reflect and build the future of end-of-life care in Australia and New Zealand. 

What to expect?
This conference recognises the importance of VAD as a growing body of clinical practice and provides a space to learn more about VAD, the people and systems involved, and what can be improved.

  • Understand the frontline experiences of health professionals delivering VAD care

  • Gather insights from Chairs of VAD Review Boards, state health departments and Ministers
  • Explore innovations and new care models for VAD from within hospice and palliative care
