Health and Disability – Patient rights
Health Care Consent
This webinar is Part I of a two-part review of issues related to health care consent and advance care planning, presented by Judith Wahl of the Advocacy Centre for the Elderly (ACE). It looks at health care consent, informed consent, and the roles of the health practitioner, the patient, and the patient's substitute decision maker (SDM) in the consent process. It has information on when patients make their own health decisions, mental capacity to consent, who can act as SDM for patients if they are not mentally capable, and how the SDM makes decisions for incapable patients.
This webinar was produced in partnership with CLEO. For more information, visit Your Legal Right's Training section at www.yourlegalrights.on.ca/training.
