Lecture Overview

Do you know what your obligation to your duty of care is when someone at work is affected by a severe mental health condition? This session will touch on different aspects of industrial law and how they relate to mental health, including your primary duties and responsibilities as a healthcare professional under the Work Health and Safety Act toward both patients, and other workmates who may be affected by serious mental health conditions. The second half of this presentation will examine several high-profile cases in which miscommunication and suboptimal care in the treatment of people with mental health conditions had fatal consequences.
