Title: The Enduring Power of Attorney
The Enduring Power of Attorney is an important legal document. Any person over the age of 18 can have EPA in place. However for the older adult it will often be discussed as part of their care. For us as health professionals with a special interest in the ageing population it is important to understand how the law aims to protect those who are no longer able to make decisions for themselves.
In this session we will explain the two types of Enduring Power of Attorney and our responsibility as a health professional in this process.
