Abstract: On 29 November 2017, the Victorian Parliament took an unprecedented step in passing a key piece of legislation, the Voluntary Assisted Dying Act 2017. This article discusses a possible framework for VAD service delivery at the health service level. By mapping VAD implementation considerations in the patient journey, the framework may be useful for medical administrators in engaging their medical and executive staff when assessing the impact of VAD legislation in Victoria. Adopting this approach of mapping VAD implementation considerations in the patient journey, may further assist in determining the position each organisation will ultimately take in this complex issue.
