Coffee Talk: Health Industry Seminar Series – BACK TO BASICS: Consent and Capacity

November 23, 2022 | Kathryn M. Frelick | Toronto

Miller Thomson is pleased to continue its BACK TO BASICS Coffee Talk series. As the health industry looks at refocusing its energies and getting back to core activities, it is time to revisit the fundamentals.

Health professionals have a legal, ethical and professional obligation to obtain consent from the individual before providing treatment. Health organizations must ensure that they have appropriate policies and processes in place to ensure that informed consent is obtained, to address substitute decision making and advance directives. This session will explore core concepts of consent and capacity. It will also review Bill 7 amendments to the Fixing Long-Term Care Act and Public Hospitals Act as it relates to consent and what this means for hospitals, long-term care homes, home and community care, patients and families.

On November 23, 2022 at 8:00a.m. we will be hosting a Coffee Talk: Health Industry Seminar Series Webinar entitled “BACK TO BASICS: Consent and Capacity”, presented by Kathryn Frelick.

This session will cover:

  • Consent to treatment
  • Capacity and Substitute Decision making  
  • Bill 7 and implications for ALC patients
  • And more…
