More safeguards and clear procedures required for Medical Treatment Planning and Decisions Bill
In our recent submission to the Minister for Health, Minister for Mental Health, Attorney-General and Shadow Minister for Health, we outlined our concerns about the Medical Treatment Planning and Decisions Bill.
This Bill seeks to establish new processes and requirements about the making of medical treatment decisions where the person being treated does not have decision-making capacity.
We recommend that future consultation be undertaken with consumers to ensure the Bill provides adequate safeguards and clear and effective procedures.
