The research team for The End of Life Choice Act 2019 at the Department of Psychological Medicine and School of Nursing, University of Auckland, invites you to a free webinar on assisted dying research in Aotearoa New Zealand on 4 April 2024.

In a two-year project (funded by the Auckland Medical Research Foundation) the researchers explored the experiences of health practitioners who have been directly or indirectly involved in providing assisted dying under the End of Life Choice Act.

They also explored the perspectives of Māori whānau and non-Māori families of individuals who used the Act, considered using the Act but ultimately did not, or did not use the Act. This study provided an opportunity for health professionals and whānau/families to reflect on their experiences of assisted dying in Aotearoa.
