Conflicts of interest and determining decision-making capacity often create complex ethical dilemmas for case managers, social workers, and other practitioners working with older adults. Please join Danielle Humphrey, JD, CELA, for a complimentary CEU on: “Capacity, Competency, and Ethical Interventions: A Legal Discussion for Healthcare Providers.” Hurley Elder Care Law will host this complimentary CEU at its office located at 100 Galleria Parkway, Suite 650, Atlanta, Georgia 30339 on Wednesday, August 24, 2016. Registration and snacks: 3:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.; CEU Education: 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Competing interests of the older adults’ family can make difficult decisions even more challenging for the helping individuals. This presentation will provide guidance and tools for assessing areas of concern when clinicians are confronted with ethical dilemmas. Attorney Humphrey will explain the difference between capacity and competency and provide guidelines for evaluation. She also will review an ethical decision-making model for practitioners to use when confronted with these dilemmas in clinical practice.
