Event description

Description

A common ethical dilemma for frontline workers is whether they should let their clients make decisions and take actions independently and risk failure, or over-protect them and not let them take risks. These daily dilemmas can have significant consequences, such as unnecessarily restricting client autonomy or causing harm. This workshop aims to help frontline workers and other professionals or carers navigate this dilemma in a structured and practical way.


After completing this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Recognize situations where your actions can lean too heavily towards dignity of risk or duty of care;
  • Make a quick and reliable assessment of your client’s capacity and determine the most appropriate support action on that basis; and
  • Help your clients regain or improve their capacity through a process of supported decision-making.

This workshop will benefit…

  • Support workers
  • Case workers
  • Youth workers
  • Drug and alcohol workers
  • Social workers
  • Counsellors
  • Nurses
  • Doctors
  • Psychologists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Other allied health practitioners
  • Team leaders
  • Managers
  • Relatives
  • Other carers
