The Canadian Association of Paediatric Health Centres is hosting a webinar on Wednesday April 10, 2013, 8:00 – 9:30 am PST (11:00 am – 12:30 pm, EDT) on legal issues affecting parents’ capacity to care for their sick child.
Medical-Legal Collaboration: addressing legal problems that affect parents’ capacity to care for their sick child
Most common problems faced by people living in poverty have a legal underpinning and legal remedies. Join us and learn about two innovativeprograms that bring together the medical, legal and social work communities. Through Pro Bono Law Office (PBLO) at Children’s Hospital (London) & PBLO at SickKids (Toronto), our teams help low-income families to resolve legal issues that may prevent them from focusing their full attention on caring for a sick child. Triage Lawyers and Social Workers from both Hospitals will be discussing the launch of these interdisciplinary programs – the only two of their kind in Ontario!
