Capacity for good decision-making

 

Recently I presented at a Networking Breakfast Seminar on this important topic.

Some of my community were able to join me and my colleagues to consider the current issues arising from practice in this area.

For those who were unable to attend a video is attached. Some very valuable tools were referred to including the Capacity Guidelines and Toolkit from the Law Institute at www.liv.asn.au/CapacityGuidelines; article by VCAT Deputy President Genevieve Nihill “Having their voices heard” in the May edition of the Law Institute of Victoria at https://www.liv.asn.au/Staying-Informed/LIJ/LIJ/May-2017/Having-their-voices-heard; and brochures “Take Control-A guide to making enduring powers of attorney” and “Side by side-A guide to appointing supportive attorneys” from the Office of the Public Advocate at www.publicadvocate.vic.gov.au.
