    • 9:00 AM Registration
    • 9:30 AM Opening & Welcome
    • 9:35 AM Update on the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality & Safety

      The session will review the evidence to-date from the Royal Commission and comment on implications for practitioners, providers and the aged care sector.

      Compliance Area: Substantive Law

    • 10:35 AM Retirement Village & Aged Care Facility Contracts

      Negotiation of retirement village and aged care facility contracts can be complex and practitioners need to be aware of the legislative framework and contextual issues that arise in this area in order to properly advise their clients.

      This seminar will examine the requirements and help you navigate the key areas. Topics covered will include:

      • pre-contractual disclosure
      • residents' rights
      • content of retirement village and aged care facility contracts
      • understanding and negotiating ingoing contributions and exit fees

      Presenters:

      • Rowdy Johnson, Lawyer, Moores
      • Andrew Sudholz, Practice Leader, Moores

      Compliance Area: Professional Skills

    • 11:35 AM Morning Tea & Light Lunch
    • 12:00 PM Update on Recent Changes to the Aged Care Act

      There is a new single set of quality standards applicable across aged care service types. These new standards require providers to demonstrate: that each consumer is supported to exercise choice and independence; a service environment that enables consumers to move freely indoors and outdoors; ongoing assessment and planning with consumers; and, where clinical care is provided, a clinical governance framework that includes minimising use of restraint.

      The Quality of Care Amendment (Minimising the Use of Restraints) Principles 2019 will impose obligations on providers that include ensuring that an assessment is carried out by a health practitioner who has concluded that restraint is required and that the reasons for the restraint and any alternatives to restraint that have been used are documented in the resident’s care and services plan.

      From 1 July 2019, it has been mandatory for residential aged care service providers to provide data on three quality indicators, including use of physical restraint, to the Department of Health.

      Discover your legal obligations and gain unique insights to service your clients better.

    LIV's Approach to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Health Alert

    As this is an evolving situation, please see the latest updates from the LIV here.

    Remote (Webinar) access to CPD

    In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation, we have put in place precautionary measures to keep our members and staff safe. As we all make sense of the changing situation, the LIV is guided by two priorities: ensuring safety and health while minimising disruption to our learners. 

    To the end of March, we will be offering our CPD activities remotely, working with all our presenters to minimise the impact on the learning experience.  We will seek to maintain the full schedule of activities and we will continue to monitor the situation and update you on an ongoing basis. 

    Recognising the end of the CPD year is looming our CPD program will now run in Webinar format. In addition, the LIV has a range of Education videos that you are able to access. New titles will continue to be added over the coming weeks.  If you have any questions regarding existing or future registrations for LIV CPD activities, please call  9607 9311  or email register@liv.asn.au.

    Information from the VLSB

    In these special circumstances, the Victorian Legal Services Board (VLSB) understands that solicitors may need to complete more than 5 of their CPD units through private study of audio/visual material. This means that for the 2019-20 CPD year only, the VLSB will not be enforcing the 5-unit cap on private study of audio/visual material as set out in the Legal Profession Uniform Continuing Professional Development (Solicitors) Rules 2015 (CPD rules). 

    Details to note:

    • The audio/visual material used for private study must be specifically designed for the purpose of updating a solicitor’s knowledge and/or skills relevant to his/her practice (CPD rule 8.2). 
    • Solicitors are already permitted to complete an unlimited number of units of ‘web-based programming’ under the CPD rules. Web-based programming is different to private study of audio/visual material because it takes place in real time or involves an interactive element such as a discussion group.

    Please also refer to Rules and our website for further information about CPD requirements.
