​​​​​A voluntary assisted dying awareness training module for NSW healthcare workers is now available. This is intended for any healthcare worker in NSW, including those in the public and private healthcare system.

​Although this training module is optional, it is strongly recommended that healthcare workers complete it to ensure they are informed about voluntary assisted dying, available in NSW as of 28 November 2023.

Upon completing this awareness training module, you will be able to:

  • outline the broad concepts of voluntary assisted dying in NSW
  • identify the obligations of healthcare workers in NSW under the Voluntary Assisted Dying Act 2022
  • where appropriate, guide patients and their families to find further information and support resources on voluntary assisted dying.

The training takes approximately 30 minutes.
