Clinicians are confronted on an almost daily basis to balance competing legislative requirements. This (4) part webinar series will examine and use three primary pieces of legislation: Personal Health Information and Protection Act (2004) The Youth Criminal Justice Act (2002) and Child Family Services Act (1990). The webinar series will review, through illustrative case example, how these three Legislative Acts can adversely affect treatment planning and service coordination. The process of balancing the spirit of each act can frustrate the clinical process and the professional.
Understanding the intent of each act and their application in matters related to clinical services is essential for good ethical practice, which benefits the client, the professional, and agency or institution. A matrix or a framework for viewing each Act in the context of treatment will be provided. As the cases and the needs of children and youth increase, the urgency to provide quality service becomes more challenging. In order to ensure program fidelity and effectiveness, professionals and agencies will increasingly have to open themselves up to self-reflection and agency wide review and monitoring. All of this happens within the context of various pieces of legislation.
This training will provide participants with a thorough understanding and appreciation for the evolution of ethics. It will assist the participants in understanding how to incorporate good ethical practice in both direct service and in the evaluation or research of that service. Participants will gain an understanding of the legislative requirements and their affect on both service and ethical decision-making.
