End of Life Law for Clinicians (ELLC) is a free Commonwealth-funded training program for nurses about the law relating to end of life decision-making.

Legal topics may include capacity and consent to medical treatment, substitute decision-making, providing pain relief, futile or non-beneficial treatment, and managing conflict.
The webinar will be delivered by Professor Lindy Willmott, Australian Centre for Health Law Research, Queensland University of Technology, with Palliative Care Nurses Australia Committee Member and clinical co-presenter Anna Nicholas, Clinical Nurse Consultant – Palliative Care.
