Share your experiences about health care consent

The Canadian Centre for Elder Law and the Alzheimer Society of B.C. are holding discussions later this month in Nanaimo and Victoria to learn about people’s experience of consenting to treatment and medication. We want to learn how the law could be improved and to help people know what their rights are.

Each discussion will begin with a brief overview of current health-care consent law in B.C. and the consent rights of people living with dementia. The presentation will be led by Krista James, National Director of the Canadian Centre for Elder Law.

Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
