[PROGRAM CANCELLED] Effective Advocacy Before the Consent and Capacity Board  

24 mars 2020
Toronto ON

OBA Health Law PROGRAM | 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Dive into the intersection between mental health and the legal system as we discuss best practices in advocating before the Consent and Capacity Board (CCB). The CCB is an independent, quasi-judicial administrative tribunal made up of panels of lawyers, psychiatrists, and public members. Whether your client is before the CCB on an application to review a physician’s finding of incapacity; or if a dispute has arisen as to who has the power to make treatment decisions; or the focus is on a client’s involuntary status in hospital, admission to care facilities, or their financial capacity, you will learn how to effectively navigate this complex area of the law.

Using case studies, our panelists, a member of the CCB and counsel who represent patients and health professionals before the Board, will guide you through several key issues including:

  • Documentation and CCB forms
  • Situations where capacity is not clear
  • Role of substitute decision makers

Register now for this highly valuable and practical program.
