FREE CE Webinar “Guardianship and Ethics: How to Avoid Removing Someone’s Rights”
October 20, 2021 | 12:00 pm–1:00 pm ET
Join Danielle Humphrey, JD, CELA, of Hurley Elder Care Law as she discusses “Guardianship and Ethics: How to Avoid Removing Someone’s Rights”
The Guardianship/Conservatorship process is a necessary, complicated intersection of our medical and legal worlds. Oftentimes, the healthcare providers are the first to recognize that a patient’s capacity may be questionable. Recommending that a family seek guardianship over their loved one may mean that complex medical issues and intricate family dynamics will be litigated in a courtroom. What ethical implications and unintended outcomes can result from this recommendation? In this CE, Hurley Elder Care Law will offer information on the basics of guardianship/conservatorship, explore the ethical issues surrounding removing someone’s rights, and offer practical alternatives to guardianship. Current information on Georgia’s Advance Directives and Powers of Attorney will also be provided. (ETHICS)
