Daughter of woman who had advanced care plans ignored launches petition for directives to be binding

  • 22/02/2023

When Barbie Duffy's advanced care plan wishes were ignored and she was kept alive, she took matters into her own hands.

The 78-year-old suffered a serious medical episode that left her with no mobility and limited comprehension, and died after 58 long days of declining food and, finally, water.

Barbie's daughter Louise has launched a campaign, known as Barbie's Bill, to make sure that doesn't happen to anyone else. 

Louise Duffy spoke to AM.
