We run seminars to help people understand guardianship and administration.
Guardians and administrators are trusted people who make decisions for people who have a disability.
The seminars are for people working in aged care, hospitals, mental health, allied health and social work.
The seminar gives you an understanding of the role the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT), the Office of the Public Advocate (OPA) and State Trustees have in providing guardianship and administration services to vulnerable Victorians.
The session will cover:
- the laws and rules that make sure people are safe and treated well when someone else is making decisions for them
- how guardians and administrators are appointed
- recommendations on how and when you can access these services for your clients.
Representatives of each of the organisations will be attending. You will be able to ask them questions about the role of their organisation in guardianship and administration.
When is the next seminar?
We run a seminar every quarter. They go for up to 90 minutes, with time for questions and general discussion.
The last seminar was at Monash Medical Centre on 29 October 2019. We haven’t confirmed yet when and where the next seminar will be.
