ACHLR/HEAL Public Lecture

Advance Care Planning: can one size fit all?


Please join members of the Australian Centre for Health Law Research and QLD Heath Ethics and Law Group for a public lecture presented by Associate Professor Bernadette Richards.


Register: By Thursday 3 August 2017
Note: CPD points may be available through your professional association or college.

Advance Care Planning is all about individual choice and respect for personal preferences. The intent behind the introduction of Advance Care Planning legislation in South Australia was to support personal preference however these preferences can be affected by cultural imperatives and specific health needs. This presentation asks the question: can one size fit all?
