Session Summary

This session provides practical information about ethics from a clinical perspective. The session delves into legal and common ethical issues in post-acute care/senior living and pulls from evidence and employee surveys regarding daily ethical issues, differentiating between ethical challenges, dilemmas for everyday and significant ethical issues. The session follows a case example format for various issues, including end-of-life care, dementia consent, staffing, and others, to apply ethical principles and decision-making to each. Attendees will walk away with additional case examples illustrating various ethical dilemmas and issues that can take place in senior care settings that they can use to facilitate similar training in their community.
