Ethical Dilemmas in Dementia Care
Length: 1 Hour


When there is a diagnosis of permanent dementia like Alzheimer’s disease, numerous ethical dilemmas arise.  Ethical challenges occur when clinicians are navigating communication and end of life with persons with dementia. There are also ethical issues involving privacy and confidentiality when the families of persons with dementia are involved. How do we balance self-determination with commitment to client/primacy of patient?  Join us for this interactive ethical discussion on how to best serve persons with dementia and their families.

This content is suitable for both beginning and intermediate levels.
