Description


Understanding power of attorney laws for Professionals

Professionals working in health, mental health, aged care and community settings will find this education to be a useful update on the power of attorney laws that came into effect on 1 September 2015

Powers of attorney allow people with legal capacity to appoint someone to make decisions for them if they need help or are unable to make their own decisions. Many people are unsure about which documents to complete and the processes required to ensure they are legally valid. Support and information can assist people to make arrangements that will work best for them and offer protection in the future. T

The provisions for the appointment of supportive attorneys will also be covered

Resources will be provided and there will be opportunity for participants to ask questions

Car parking is very limited. There is short-term metered parking in surrounding streets. There is also a car park underneath the building , but spaces are limited, particularly later in the day.
