Panel to discuss prevention of abuse of Enduring Power of Attorney


Anyone who is in the St. John's area and who has questions or concerns about Enduring Powers of Attorney might be interested in this event that is happening tonight. I'm participating in a panel that is going to explore issues around Enduring Powers of Attorney with particular focus on what changes need to be made in order to address the abuse of these documents.

The official poster says:
"A power of attorney is a good tool, but not without its pitfalls. A panel of local experts will present an overview of some of the broad medical, legal, financial, and social issues associated with the use of these documents.  The panelists will present some important considerations and raise questions to generate critical thinking. The presentation will be followed by a Question and Answer session and is open to the public."

The moderator of the event is Dr. Gail Wideman of the School of Social Work, MUN

The panelists are:
- Barry Fleming, QC, the Citizens' Representative
- Dr. Susan Mercer, MUN
- John Goodland, Deputy Public Trustee
- Lynne Butler, Wills and Estates Consultant, Lawyer, Author

The event is happening at the Fairfield (Marriott) at 199 Kenmount Road, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
