PoET seeks to realign decision making with Ontario’s Health Care Consent Act, which requires that the patient/resident be kept at the center of decision making. PoET helps to ensure that long term care residents receive wanted and beneficial treatment, and do not receive unwanted or non-beneficial treatment.
What to Know When You Get Sick
When you get sick lots of people – doctors, nurses, family, and friends – will be wanting you to get better. This is what you need to know.
The PoET Project responds to our basic ethical obligation: to provide treatment that patients want and can benefit from; don’t provide treatment patients don’t want and can’t benefit from. Core to this is providing culturally sensitive care founded upon patient consent. In Ontario, there are a number of important resources for determining consent, provided here for your reference.
