Welcome to Dying With Dignity Queensland
Despite great advances in medical knowledge, dying can still be far too often a prolonged, painful, and distressing process. Even Palliative Care Australia has conceded that for a small percentage of patients, their final pain and suffering cannot be fully alleviated by modern drugs. Most people know of someone dear to them whose life has ended in this way and for whom death was a welcome release. It is not the fact of dying which worries people; it is the fear of loss of personal control and being kept “alive” in such a condition that death would be preferable.
Dying With Dignity societies around the world aim to change this situation. We seek legislation to enable those suffering unbearably with no hope of relief to have, if they so wish, access to a medically assisted, quick, peaceful and dignified death.
Dying With Dignity Queensland Inc is a non-profit organisation formed in Brisbane in 1985 and was formerly known as the Voluntary Euthanasia Society of Queensland (VESQ).

Over 18 months, Andrew Denton travelled throughout Australia and across the world to investigate why good people are dying bad deaths in Australia – and why there is no law to help them. The result is a groundbreaking 17-part podcast series covering the personal stories, the moral arguments and the laws overseas which operate successfully.
