Decision-Making In Practice. POSTPONED


Please Note

Due to the restrictions put in place with COVID 19 we have taken the decision to postpone this event in the interests of peoples' health and safety. We look forward to seeing people again in the future when we are able to reschedule.

1 March 2020 saw the introduction of the Guardianship and Administration Act 2019, which sets out a new framework for how adult guardians and administrators should make decisions for Victorians with a disability. Guardianship laws, by their nature, often deal with decision-making in complex, emotional or contested circumstances. So, how do laws allow for clarity in such ambiguous circumstances? And, how do organisations best communicate and adapt to external changes that recontextualise decades of precedents?

This session will be run as a mix of activities, facilitated conversation and presentation, to bring to life how decision-making principles have changed over time and the run-on impact to both organisations and individuals.

Key aspects of the session include:
1) Understanding different models of decision-making, including
‘substitute’ and ‘supportive’ roles
2) Exploring how to raise new ways of working in conservative work
3) Discovering how to recognise but not rely on past expertise
