Summary

"All States and Territories in Australia have implemented legislation relating to end-of-life decision-making and substitute judgement. However, reports to relevant legal and community services indicate that many gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) people in NSW - estimated to be about five percent of the population - are being denied their legal rights in the end-of-life care of their partners and other important people in their lives." -- Excutive summary.
