Interprofessional Grand Rounds discussions are a clinically-led platform for sharing medical knowledge and best practice.
Each session includes a patient, GP and hospital specialist perspective and is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge about local referral pathways (HealthPathways), ask questions and share your expertise with West Moreton Health clinicians and GPs in the region.
Grand Rounds discussions will be held via Microsoft Teams on the last Wednesday of the month from 12 noon to 1 pm.

Topic: Voluntary Assisted Dying: West Moreton Health update
The session provides a West Moreton Health specific and state-wide update on Voluntary Assisted Dying since it was implemented on 1 January 2023, as well as information on referral pathways. The introduction of VAD provides an additional end-of-life option for eligible people with a life-limiting condition. VAD and other end-of-life options are sensitive and complex topics, with many holding deeply personal views for reasons that are important to them.
