CAPACITY ASSESSMENT AND GUARDIANSHIP
Those working in the area of medico-legal reporting or wishing to get into this field, will benefit most from this workshop
Half-day workshop which will be held in Perth and will be hosted by Ms Robyn Lieblich who is a Social Worker and Mr David Bayly who heads up Bradley Bayly's Medical Law Practice.
Ms Robyn Leiblich will include a discussion of the ethical foundation
of the guardianship system; the operation of this system currently in
WA and the range of less formal substitute decision-making strategies
available to support vulnerable individuals.
The second session will be an interactive workshop-style presentation exploring these issues.
Mr David Bayly: It is important for practitioners
treating and assessing those with traumatic brain injuries and/or with
impaired capacity to understand the legal considerations involved with
identifying and determining whether a person has impaired capacity to
either instruct a lawyer and/or manage a large settlement sum in the
eyes of the law. During this segment, David Bayly, who heads up Bradley
Bayly's WA Medical Law Practice, will walk you through the legal process
involved in determining a claimant’s capacity and the significance of
this determination in relation to an individual’s compensation claim.
David will also discuss the intersection between the legal and medical
aspects of the issue of capacity and what you need to know as providers
to assist lawyers navigate through this process.
