EXPLORING SUPPORTED DECISION MAKING IN HEALTH CARE FORUM

November 23 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Free

About the Forum

Interactions with health care services can be a trigger point for the loss of decision making rights. The Australian Law Reform Commission recommends reform around four four principles that protect every person’s right to decide. It recommends supported decision making as a reasonable and necessary support to fulfil this right.

This forum will explore the implications for supported decision making in health care focusing upon:

  • Duty of Care
  • Dignity of Risk
  • Informed Consent

Join us for a café and panel style discussion focusing on supported decision making in the health care sector and the difference supported decision making could have on the health outcomes and experience of people who require support to make decisions.

 

Minister for Health Meegan Fitzharris will be opening the forum and morning tea will be provided.

 

If you need support to RSVP to this event please contact the Supported Decision Making team.
