First Thursday Club: Providing health care to children whose parents have separated

event information
Thursday, 5 October 2023
8:30am - 9:30am AEST
Live session through Microsoft Teams

When a couple end their relationship and file for divorce and/or separate, a number of legal and practical issues arise.

One significant issue is the ongoing health care of their children.

How is this best managed and should one or both parents have control over care provided (and not provided)?

Where there is a lack of clarity or an ongoing dispute, how should health care providers protect themselves while still acting in the child’s best interests?

Please join us for the October FTC session where BN’s Rob Samut will discuss:

  • Consent for health care to children
  • Position of the health care provider where parents of a child cannot agree on the care to be provided
  • Gillick competent minors
  • Relevant provisions of the Family Law Act
  • Children’s medical records
