The Canadian Elder Law Conference is again hosting a two-day program on the law and policy issues impacting older adults, in Vancouver, British Columbia on November 2-3, 2017.
After taking this course, you will:
be better able to identify and address the legal issues that impact your older client
be familiar with recent trends, developments, and research in the law with respect to elder law topics such as medical assistance in dying, mental capacity, undue influence, independent legal advice, financial abuse, and adult protection
better understand the legal, practical, and ethical issues in relation to older clients with mental capacity and self-neglect issues
The program this year will include a debate on "video surveillance in long-term care," a panel on medically assisted death and advance consent, and a discussion of undue influence and independent legal advice.
