Engaging People Living with Dementia in Decision-Making
September 15 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm
September 2021—Although international, federal, and provincial / territorial laws protect the rights of people living with dementia to make their own decisions or participate in decision-making where they have capacity issues, people living with dementia are often excluded from making decisions about health care, money, and other every day issues that matter to them. This webinar will highlight key laws, identify barriers to participation in decision-making, and discuss the work of the Canadian Centre of Elder Law to support policy and practice change that honours the decision-making autonomy of people living with dementia.
- Speaker: Krista James, National Director Canadian Centre for Elder Law, and Staff Lawyer, British Columbia Law Institute
- When: September 15 @ 2:00-2:30 pm ADT / 1:00-1:30 pm ET
