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.

Kevin Coughlin is currently the Acting Manager of the Personal Decision Services department In Services to Adults at the Public Guardian and Trustee (PGT) - a department recently created in order to fulfill the PGT's role as set out under Part 3 of the Health Care (Consent) and Care Facility (Admission) Act. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in History and Political Science and a Masters of Social Work from the University of British Columbia. He is interested in issues related to aging and intersectionality and has had the privilege of exploring this interest in his work supporting vulnerable adults in British Columbia.
