How the law applies in your general practice .

General practice




General practitioners (GPs) perform both clinical and legal roles for their patients, including completing Advance Care Directives with their patients, identifying substitute decision-makers, and making decisions about emergency or hospital treatment.

To do this effectively it’s important for GPs to know end of life law. Visit the ELDAC legal toolkit for high quality, state specific information about end of life law in clinical and aged care practice, or call the ELDAC Helpline on 1800 870 155 for assistance.
