Synopsis

Part 3 of the Health Care (Consent) and Care Facility (Admission) Act became law on November 4, 2019, subsequent to changes to provincial policy about the process for enhancing choice for adults waiting for care home placements. This session will set the context, and will cover key definitions, elements of informed consent and the process for seeking it. We will include details about the role and qualifications of managers, assessors and requirements for incapability assessments. The role of substitutes, including the role of the Public Guardian and Trustee as substitute decision maker will be described, along with a few early reflections on the law in practice.
