Understanding Decision Making Workshop
Guardianship and administration matters can be complicated. You may be asked to provide support for a person to make a decision, or to work with their decision maker. This often requires a solid understanding of Supported Decision making, Enduring Power of Attorney (EPOA) documents, Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) orders and working with decision makers.
ADA Australia offers individual and group based training sessions on “Understanding Decision Making” to help people understand the intricacies of guardianship and administration issues.
Our courses are designed to increase knowledge, build understanding and provide an informative overview of guardianship and administration matters. Previous participants have praised our training approach and course content for its relevance to workers in the aged care, disability, mental health, nursing, allied health, residential care and community sectors. Training typically address issues related to:
- Supported decision making and Substitute decision making, particularly for health matter
- How to access support when a person’s decision making capacity is impaired or questioned, and when decision makers are not acting in a client’s best interest
- Enduring Power of Attorney (EPOA) and Advanced Health Directive (AHD) documents, their powers, limits and how they relate to everyday decisions
- The roles of the statutory agencies: Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT), Office of the Public Guardian and the Public Trustee.
This training provides workers with a crucial understanding of legal and ethical considerations to best support clients whose decision making capacity is substituted, diminished, or being questioned. It equips workers with the skills to ensure the rights of their clients are upheld and their choices protected. The course also covers how to make informed professional decisions and safeguard the client’s rights and organisations through improved practice.
The costs of the workshop is $165 (gst inc.) per person.
