The legal rights of people living with communication barriers to make healthcare decisions are in jeopardy because of the inaccessibility of the consent and capacity process. Speech Language Pathologists can advocate for, support and in some cases evaluate capacity, but they need the tools and legal knowledge so to do.

This session is rated "Intermediate" which assumes general familiarity with the literature and professional practice within the areas covered.
