Professional responsibility symposium 2019
23 October 2019, 8.45am – 4.45pm, 6.5 CPD Units
The College of Law, Sydney CBD
We live in a world with shifting and conflicting contexts. Changing social, economic, technological, cultural, legal and ethical contexts especially affect clients with declining cognitive capacity. Their range of needs and issues have grown. So have the duties of care and responsibility of the professions.
All professionals need to be aware of these growing needs and issues. All professionals must recognise and understand the wealth, health and wellness concerns that drive the decisions of their clients and their successors. This begins with mapping client relationships and assessing the cognitive state of each individual. Is there any cognitive decline on an individual’s ability to be an autonomous decision maker? How long does the individual’s wealth have to last in an ageing society? What standard of care is appropriate for each individual?
Why you should attend: • Hear new thinking on how to resolve the needs of ageing individuals
• Learn to better manage professional responsibility risks
• Learn how to apply cross-disciplinary approaches
• Check your understanding of the range of needs and issues
