Assessing life expectancy for VAD may prove challenging: University of Sydney

The University of Sydney reports that assessing life expectancy for VAD may prove to be a difficult task for doctors.

The university writes: 

"Doctors determining a person's eligibility for voluntary assisted dying must assess life expectancy which is an 'inherently uncertain and imprecise' task made more difficult by inconsistent wording across state legislation, according to University of Sydney experts."
