Event description
Webinar - What are the legal implications for Mental Health Practitioners when providing Informed Consent and ensuring Duty of Care?

About this event

Hear from an experienced Barrister and Solicitor about what you need to do to ensure you meet your legal obligations when providing counselling services in this modern world.

This one hour webinar is presented to you by Dr. Martin Taylor, a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Victoria and of the High Court of Australia.

Martin holds (amongst many others) a Bachelor of Laws; Bachelor of Arts (Police Studies); Master’s in Education; is a trained Paramedic and holds an graduate diploma in educational psychology. Martin is a commissioned officer of the Defence Force, holding the rank of Major in the Australian Army.

Martin brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to explain to you the importance of using a legally binding Informed Consent and ensuring Duty of Care. Informed consent is a person’s decision, given voluntarily, to agree to a healthcare treatment, procedure or other intervention that is made:

  • Following the provision of accurate and relevant information about the healthcare intervention and alternative options available; and
  • With adequate knowledge and understanding of the benefits and material risks of the proposed intervention relevant to the person who would be having the treatment, procedure or other intervention.

Ensuring informed consent is properly obtained is a legal, ethical and professional requirement on the part of all treating health professionals and supports person-centred care. Good clinical practice involves ensuring that informed consent is validly obtained and appropriately timed.

A duty of care is a legal obligation to avoid acts or omissions that could foreseeably lead to harm to another person. A breach of a duty of care that leads to harm to someone amounts to the tort of negligence. In Victoria, the law of negligence is governed by the Wrongs Act 1958, and by the common law. While in some circumstances it is clear whether or not a person owes a duty of care to another, in other situations it can be difficult to establish.

What do practitioners need to do to ensure they do to cover off on legally binding Informed Consent and their Duty of Care?

This informative webinar will provide you with relevant information to ensure you meet your legal obligations in private clinical practice.
