On the 19th of May 2022, the NSW government passed legislation allowing euthanasia in NSW. This will come into effect in November 2023. Many health care professionals who have opposed and expressed conscientious objection to this legislation, have now found themselves in an even more ethically challenging workplace environment.
We wish to ask, what is the nature of the legislation that has come to pass, and what are the possible ways forward for those who conscientiously object. We are delighted to welcome our three passionate speakers who have been working at the forefront of this issue for many years.
