Presented by:
Janice A. Anderson, BSN, JD, Polsinelli Shughart PC
Linda Young, Administrator, Chief Nursing Officer, Borgess Visiting Nurse and Hospice Services

Ethics is in the news daily. Home health and hospice staff face ethical issues frequently; patient self-determination, patient abandonment, uncooperative caregivers in the home and new regulations such as the face-to-face encounter. Organization staff need to be able to identify problems quickly, and know how to prevent them. The speakers will address these issues from an ethical standpoint as well as from a legal perspective.

Features and Benefits:

After attending this webinar, the participant will be able to:

  • Understand patient self-determination: When the patient’s wishes are contrary to medical judgment.
  • Identify caregiver issues that impact care.
  • Discuss ethical issues such as face-to-face certification requirement, discharge for cause and providing care when the patient lives alone.
