Voluntary Assisted Dying Review Board
A Voluntary Assisted Dying Review Board (the Review Board) will be established to provide independent oversight and monitor compliance with the Voluntary Assisted Dying Act 2021 (the Act).
The Review Board will be responsible for reviewing completed voluntary assisted dying requests to ensure legal requirements have been met by all those involved. If required, the Review Board will refer issues to relevant organisations such as:
- the Commissioner of Police
- State Coroner
- Queensland Health Director-General
- the Health Ombudsman.
It will also undertake annual reporting, identify systemic issues and build a knowledge base about voluntary assisted dying in Queensland.
