Description

This session, presented by an attorney, bioethicist, and a long time medical director, will detail and reinforce the use of the interprofessional bioethics committee format in skilled nursing facilities, with a specific eye toward promoting resident-centered care and autonomy, and taking into account risk management principles. The session will also review determination of decisional capacity, and includes content on working with incapacitated, unrepresented patients. In addition to didactic content, case presentations and small group discussion will be utilized.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Implement an interprofessional ethics evaluation framework to support resident-centered care decisions in PA/LTC, including the medical director as a vital participant.
  2. Assess decision-making capacity for nursing home residents with respect to a variety of situations. 
  3. Apply the principles of bioethics to direct resident-centered care in light of risk management concerns.
