Who Has Authority?

Who can refuse medical treatment? What about a ‘not-for-resus’? Who can decide it’s time to move into a nursing home?

The Office of the Public Advocate’s inaugural forum explores who has authority to make medical, financial and lifestyle decisions for others when they are unable to do this for themselves. In covers a broad range of topics, including enduring powers of attorney, medical treatment decision making and advance care planning.

This event is booked out.

Presented by The Office of the Public Advocate.
