Dykeman to provide insight into key issues in long-term care homes

Toronto health lawyer Mary Jane Dykeman will present a primer on key issues in long-term care homes at the upcoming 2015 Guide to Advising the Elderly Client program, hosted by Osgoode Professional Development.

The practical and intensive two-day program, set to take place on Nov. 4 and 5 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., will explore best practices and practical approaches, and aims to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the current and emerging issues in this evolving body of law.

On Nov. 5 at 4 p.m., Dykeman, partner at Dykeman Dewhirst O’Brien LLP, will discuss inspections and mandatory reporting of abuse and neglect in long-term care homes, requirements regarding use and limitation of restraints and PASDs, what is permissible when it comes to the use of wheelchairs and other personal aids, navigating conflict with the SDM/family on care decisions and the ability to restrict or limit visits, as well as criteria for refusing admission to, and discharging from, long-term care.

The program will take place at the Osgoode Professional Development Centre, located at 1 Dundas St. W., 26th Fl. in Toronto.
