ABC radio personality Tony Delroy will moderate an Australian-first Dying with Dignity forum at Port Panthers Auditorium on March 14.
The forum is between 2pm and 4.30pm with tickets released earlier this week.
A recent survey revealed 85 per cent of Australians were in favour of legalising medically assisted dying for the terminally and incurably ill.
Port Macquarie DWD convenor Annie Quadroy said the forum would discuss and debate all the important issues.
"We are delighted that eminent Australians on the topic have confirmed their participation, and it will be the first time in Australia that these renowned Australians will be sharing the same stage," she said.
Team member Bruce Gibbs said it was important to have a forum to discuss topics which included any issue, difficulty, procedure or impediments that surround making and carrying out a choice on how to peacefully end one's life if terminally ill.
"Port Macquarie residents, like most Australians, have shown over the past 12 months that there is a groundswell of support for all Australians to have the right to be given the choice when they wish to end their life which is not surprising given the age demographics in the Hastings," he said.
Port Macquarie people now have the opportunity to ask questions of a unique Australian expert panel never before assembled in a public debate on the issue.
"The panel we have put together represents the best knowledge and information on the issues governing how to achieve our goals and with the needed political drive and opportunity that has never been achieved in any similar forum in Australia," Mr Gibbs said.
"Senator Richard Di Natale presented the most recent exposure bill to the Senate in 2014, Dr Rodney Syme has admitted to providing a pathway for a terminally ill person to die peacefully, Dr Frank Brennan is a world renown Australian palliative care specialist and Shayne Higson is the first person to lead a team of candidates in NSW seeking election to the Upper House."
Dying with Dignity president and clinical psychologist, author and trainer Dr Sarah Edelman will be MC for the forum.
Tickets are $13 and are available from Port Panthers or by calling 6580 2300.
