Mental Health & The Law

The Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) in conjunction with Borden Ladner Gervais LLP, is pleased to offer this one-day conference (Thursday, May 21, 2015) to explore the key issues facing health care organizations in the area of mental health and the law. The legislative and regulatory environment governing mental health in Ontario has evolved significantly in recent years. Health care practitioners are consistently faced with new and unique challenges in caring for patients with mental illness. Understanding a patient’s privacy, seeking rights advice, and ascertaining capacity, among others, makes mental illness and the law an increasingly complex area.
