The Australian Centre for Health Law Research is delighted to announce the launch of its new website End of Life Law in Australia at http://www.end-of-life.qut.edu.au. Please feel free to circulate this email and the attached brochure to your colleagues, organisation and networks.

About the website

End of Life Law in Australia is designed to provide practical legal information for patients, families, health and legal practitioners, the media, policy makers and the broader community about Australian laws (by jurisdiction) relating to death, dying and end-of-life decision-making. The website covers key areas of interest including advance directives, guardianship, withholding and withdrawing life-sustaining treatment, palliative care, organ donation and assisted dying and euthanasia, with links to external resources in each Australian State and Territory.

End of life Law in Australia also has a Recent Developments webpage which is regularly updated with information about legal and policy developments in the end-of-life field. Should you wish to subscribe for updates, please email achlr@qut.edu.au with the words ‘subscribe website’ in the subject line.
