VAD Research Summary

Queensland legal academics and long term VAD researchers, Ben White and Lindy Willmott, have summarised many years of research into a handy summary document. The summary covers 37 research papers. White and Willmott were major contributors to the landmark Australia 21 Roundtable on VAD held in Queensland in January 2013 - amidst the floods.

With more than 20 years’ research in this area, Professors White and Willmott authored the original VAD Bill that the Queensland Parliamentary Health Committee recommended as the basis for law reform in 2020.

The Queensland Law Reform Commissioner drew heavily on this research, referencing the draft legislation as the “White and Willmott Bill”.
