Webcast · 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm (ATL)

This session will explore medico-legal interactions involving Health Care Directives in New Brunswick. The discussion will include information and resources to understand and communicate to clients the different situations in which a Health Care Directive is important from serious critical illnesses like Covid-19 through end of life care including terminal illness and dementia.  

Topics included are the planning process for a Enduring Power of Attorney for Personal Care and Health Care Directive, the capacity required to make these documents, when they can be used in health care situations to give health care instructions, and how this may differ from personal care decisions. Additional responsibilities of Attorneys to document the decision-making process, notify and report to designated individuals and monitors are also reviewed.
