Let Mark know your thoughts
AN INQUIRY into euthanasia and palliative care has been commenced by the Queensland Parliament, with it being referred to the Health, Communities, Disability Services and Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Committee on November 14, with the final report due by November 30, 2019.
The questions surrounding euthanasia and palliative care are fraught with deeply emotional, ethical and religious beliefs often coupled with personal experiences.
Thus it is incredibly important that we hear from our community.
Patients, carers, health care workers, the extended family and indeed all of us have an opinion.
Many can tell from personal experience the difficulty these questions arouse.
I encourage all who have an opinion to read the terms of reference and to let me know your thoughts through the form on my website.
Please note this is not a formal submission but an opportunity to let me know your thoughts on the matter.
You will be able to make a formal submission to the committee in the coming months.
For now let’s commence an honest and respectful discussion here on the Coast about end-of-life knowing that our thoughts and comments could impact on the ultimate report by the Committee. MARK MCARDLE’S DISCUSSION FORM:
