Participation in research

To understand how people make decisions about voluntary assisted dying, we are interviewing:

  • people who have sought or are seeking voluntary assisted dying, and their families; and
  • health practitioners (such as doctors and nurses) who have experience in voluntary assisted dying (e.g. receiving requests, participating in the assessment process, or providing voluntary assisted dying).

Our goal is to understand how decisions are made, how the system works and how it can be improved.

We are currently conducting interviews in Australia (Victoria and Western Australia) and in select Canadian provinces as part of our Canadian Case Study (British Columbia, Ontario, and Nova Scotia). Voluntary assisted dying is known as medical assistance in dying, or MAiD, in Canada.
