End of Life Ireland

Welcome to Ireland

This two day in-person global conference on Voluntary Assisted Dying is where legislators and government officials, clinicians and healthcare professionals, lawyers, end of life advocates will  gain invaluable insights to inform their work and deepen understanding. It’s about sharing of knowledge and collective learning.

Speakers and delegates will be travelling from countries across the world where Assisted Dying/MAiD is available, those conducting legislative reviews and carrying out extensive research into how legislation is working, to countries who, like Ireland, are moving closer to legislating.

The 2024 Conference includes main stage speakers, presentation of abstracts, panelist/table discussions and personal contributions, concluding with an optional Gala Dinner on Saturday 21st September.

Delegates attending the main conference are also welcome to attend  (f.o.c.) the WFRtDS Biennial General Assembly which runs the day before on Thursday 19th September 2024.
