Balancing Human Rights During COVID19  |  Rights Talk 


Balancing Human Rights During COVID19 banner

When - Friday 27 November, 12 noon - 1.30pm
Where - Live online event
Tickets - Free and available online here 

The COVID-19 pandemic is a global challenge that has required extraordinary measures to protect public health. Difficult decisions have had to be made about restricting some of our human rights – such as freedom of movement and association.

Protecting public health and protecting human rights are not mutually exclusive choices – but how do we keep the balance between the two? What safeguards do we need to protect rights and freedoms in Australia and prevent the ‘creeping authoritarianism’ we have witnessed elsewhere in the world?

Our panel of distinguished speakers will consider the issues and solutions from a human rights perspective in a live online event facilitated by Human Rights Commissioner Edward Santow.

End of Life Law for Clinicians 

End of Life Law for Clinicians (‘ELLC’) is a free national training program for clinicians, medical students, nurses and allied health professionals about the law at end of life. ELLC aims to improve participants’ knowledge and clinical practice to enhance their capacity to manage legal issues in end of life care. The program has been developed by the Queensland University of Technology, and is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health. We attach a Project Overview and flyer about the Project. 

Research shows clinicians have critical legal knowledge gaps, and a strong desire to know more about end of life law to better support dying patients and avoid legal risk. ELLC seeks to address these issues by delivering 10 free online training Modules on end-of-life and palliative care law across all Australian States and Territories, and  22 case-study based workshops across Australia (in 2019 and early 2020).
