Event description

Description

The Law can often appear impenetrable and confusing, but it operates to protect both patients and health care providers. This seminar will address some basic legal concepts, and help answer common questions about how the law impacts on you and your patients.

This seminar is aimed at health care professionals and will address the point at which the law impacts on your professional activities. The seminar will address some practical questions that often arise, and will involve formal presentations and interactive discussions. Topics to be covered include:

  • Professional Standards

  • Issues of consent

  • Advance care planning, the role of the health care provider

  • Consent to Medical Treatment and Palliative Care Act: what is it and what does it mean to me?

  • Mandatory Reporting – what is mandatory reporting and how does it work?

  • Regulating innovation

$385 (including GST) per person (includes morning tea and informal networking lunch)
