Following on from Aged Care Part I: ‘A shocking tale of neglect’, in this webinar, we will explore how we can all as healthcare professionals help improve the services to aged care going forward. We now know the system is at crisis point so we need to focus on the broader health related issues impacting our parents, grandparents, friends and patients. 

What are you legal and ethical obligations in providing appropriate care to our most vulnerable and how you can work to meet industry requirements and minimise your risk exposure?

Some points that we will cover are:
Consent by competent adults and substitute decision makers 
Advance care directives and powers of attorney
Communication – end of life care
* Breaking bad news
* Dealing with the dying
* Family dynamics
Withholding or withdrawing treatment 
Voluntary, assisted dying legislation (VIC & WA)

Presented by Jayr Teng, Principal Solicitor, Department of Health and Human Services Victoria and Dr Nichola Davis, MIPS clinico-legal adviser. 

* RACGP 2 Cat 2 points (pending)
* ACRRM 1 Core point (pending)
* Dental 1 hour

CPD points will be allocated if you stay for the whole hour, fully complete the webinar and a certificate is issued.
