November 9, 2021, 12pm-1pm
Hosted by: Community Legal Centres Queensland

When it comes to healthcare decision-making, do we focus enough on the Presumption of Capacity of the individual?

Join ADA Law and the UQ Pro Bono Centre for this free webinar for legal and healthcare professionals providing a detailed look at who can decide about receiving or refusing healthcare under law in Queensland, including:

  • relevant legislation
  • presumption of capacity
  • steps for obtaining consent or refusal
  • human rights and the importance of supported decision-making
  • when to defer to substitute decision-makers and hierarchy.

The webinar will also provide information about how CLCs can work with UQ Pro Bono Centre to develop CLE materials.
