Description

Advance Care Planning including a Legal Perspective

Opportunity to interact and talk with experts in the field

Overview

With the recent emergence in end of life care discussions in the community, this experiential workshop has been developed to help you understand the current legislations and implications on your practice around caring for a patient who has a life limiting illness, for when they lose their decision-making capacity. In addition to a panel section held during the day, there will be case studies.

“Advance Care Planning (ACP) helps people to plan and prepare in advance for any decisions that need to be made. It encompasses communication issues, health system and medico legal considerations relating to care planning processes and documentation (such as the completion of Advance Directives) in advanced disease.”
