Community forum on advance care planning and My Health Record – find out more and share feedback

You are invited to an interactive community forum about advance care planning. Advance care planning can help you to plan ahead, so your family, friends and doctors will know what you want if you can no longer speak for yourself.

As part of the workshop, we will provide you with some information about My Health Record and how you can use it to help store you or your family’s advance care planning documents.

The morning session will cover information related to advance care planning. The afternoon session will give an overview of My Health Record and then involve an interactive session where feedback is sought about the practical aspects of using My Health Record for storing advance care planning documents. A consumer participation payment is payable to people who participate in the afternoon workshop session.

Health Consumers’ Council, Carers WA, the Advance Care Planning Consortium (via Palliative Care WA) and the WA Health Support Services are organising this workshop:

  • Tuesday 26 November
  • 10am – 3pm
  • Bendat Basketball Centre
  • Free to attend – lunch provided

TGA Consultation – Assistive Technologies and Excluded Goods

The TGA has released a consultation paper: Clarification of the regulation of products used for and by people with disabilities – Options for amendment to the Therapeutic Goods (Excluded Goods) Determination 2018

This consultation is seeking feedback on options for amending the Therapeutic Goods (Excluded Goods) Determination 2018, to clarify which products intended for use for, or by, people with disabilities are excluded goods, and so regulated as consumer rather than therapeutic goods.
 
Consultation details, including the paper, are available on the TGA website at: https://www.tga.gov.au/consultation/consultation-products-used-and-people-disabilities. Submissions close 25 October 2019.

Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability

​​The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability was established on 4 April 2019 by the Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retired).

The Commissioners are required to provide an interim report no later than 30 October 2020, and a final report by no later than 29 April 2022.

The Disability Royal Commission wants to hear from all Australians about their experiences of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with disability.

They want to make it as easy as possible for people with disability to participate in this Royal Commission and share their stories, so they are now accepting submissions where you can share your experiences.
