Become a practitioner

How do I become a practitioner?

Has your patient asked you about voluntary assisted dying? Are you interested in supporting people with terminal illness to have end-of-life choice?

To become a voluntary assisted dying practitioner, you must complete mandatory online training (between 6-8 hours). There are roles for nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and doctors depending on where you’re working.

If it feels daunting, join the VADANZ community who can support you with questions or concerns.
