One of the many challenges in dealing with mental health law issues is understanding the relevant law and its application. Often decisions must be made quickly, with inadequate information or consultation. Failure to adequately assess risk, to properly address the rights of individuals and their families, or to provide proper patient care, can compromise essential rights of an individual and his or her family and create exposure to liability.
Now in its ninth year, this practice-based program gives you the knowledge and practical skills you need to competently and confidently handle mental health law issues. Over the course of five intensive, one-day modules, you will learn what you need to know and acquire best practices from some of the most knowledgeable and experienced experts in Canada. You will come away from this program with knowledge, tools, strategies and tactics that you can put to immediate use.
Fees include attendance, program materials, lunch and break refreshments for each of the 5 days of the program.
We will make every effort to present the certificate program as advertised, but it may be necessary to change the dates, location, speakers or content with little or no notice.
