Substitute Consent for a Restrictive Practice under State and Territory Laws in Aged Care

From 1 July 2021 providers have to have a ‘restrictive practices substitute decision maker’ appointed for aged care residents who do not have capacity to consent to a restrictive practice.

The Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission requires that the restrictive practices substitute decision maker be ‘a person or body that, under the law of the State and Territory in which the consumer is provided with aged care, can give informed consent to a restrictive practice’. The requirement to meet State and Territory legislation has caused providers much confusion and anxiety.

In this webinar the Public Guardians/Advocates of New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria provide an explanation as to the current legal requirements in their State/Territory and give advice on the best way forward in their State.

Participants can put questions to the Guardians/Advocates via the chat function
