A round-table discussion on advance care planning and health care consent in the context of chronic and episodic health conditions.
We welcome healthcare professionals, community-based service providers, people living with chronic health conditions, legal experts and caregivers to join us in a round-table discussion on advance care planning and health care consent in the context of chronic and episodic health conditions.
The event will provide information and encourage dialogue related to the following questions:
- Everybody has a substitute decision-maker? How do I know who it is and can I change it?
- What are the barriers to fully-informed health care consent across the life course for people living with chronic health conditions? What needs to be done to reduce these?
- Do existing advance care planning tools and resources work for people with chronic health conditions? Where can I find them?
- Are service providers doing enough to help people with chronic health conditions plan for incapacity?
- How can access to justice be improved for people with chronic health conditions?
The goal of this event is to bring together stakeholders who may be willing to work strategically and collaboratively on advocacy, education and access initiatives related to health care consent and advance care planning.
This public event is free, but space is limited.
