The introduction of safe, accessible and compassionate voluntary assisted dying gives eligible South Australians with a terminal illness choice at the end of life.

The process enables eligible people to voluntarily access and self-administer, or in some circumstances have a medical practitioner administer, a medication that will cause their death, in accordance with the steps and process set out in the Act.

The Knowing your choices: Information for people considering voluntary assisted dying (PDF 212KB) booklet is a resource to help you, your family, friends and carers, and the community learn more about accessing voluntary assisted dying in South Australia.
