Join Danielle Humphrey for a CE on "Surrogate Decision Makers"

The Arbor at BridgeMill
700 Freedom Blvd.
Canton, GA  30114 Map

Please join Danielle Humphrey, JD, CELA, for a complimentary lunch CE on "Surrogate Decision Making: An Ethical Discussion"

Healthcare professionals recognize that dealing with a surrogate decision maker is often necessary. Most even encourage their patients to identify a healthcare agent in an advance directive for healthcare. Yet knowing who is the legal decision maker is not always clear. During the presentation Hurley Elder Care Law will present information explaining the four different types of surrogate decision makers and their necessary legal documents. The presenters will review the responsibilities of a healthcare agent and discuss factors to consider when dealing with a healthcare agent. The discussion will feature a review of ethical dilemmas that health care agents face and examine guidelines for making decisions on behalf of someone else. Through a series of case studies, the presenters will discuss how healthcare professionals sometimes struggle with patient autonomy and informed consent when surrogates are involved.

1 Ethics CE hour available for social workers, case managers, and nurses.

“Do you have your documents in place?” Healthcare providers ask this question to patients and families daily and more often than we would like, the answer is “no.” What healthcare documents does everyone really need and exactly how do they work? What are the repercussions of needing care and having no documents in place? What options do healthcare providers have when families need to take action? This seminar will review the essential documents every adult needs including the General Durable Power of Attorney, The Georgia Advance Directive for Healthcare and various other documents that may be recommended.

CE hours available: 1 core hour for social workers (ASWB); 1 contact hour for case managers (CCMC); 1 contact hour for RNs (CNA).

Join Miles Hurley, JD, for a complimentary dinner CE on "The Dementia Maze"

Sunrise at Ivey Ridge
2950 Old Alabama Road
Alpharetta, GA  30022 Map

Please join Miles Hurley, JD, CELA for a complimentary dinner CE on "The Dementia Maze: Understanding the Options and Cost of Care".

Every 67 seconds someone in the U.S. develops Alzheimer’s, and one in three seniors will die with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. The purpose of this activity is to review the basics of Alzheimer’s disease and then analyze the financial impact of the disease to families and employers as well as those affected by it. Knowing the options available and planning for the unexpected loss in functional and cognitive capacity is the best way for healthcare professionals to advise their patients and families. The earlier you plan, the more options are available. Dementia is hard enough when there is a plan in place; dementia with no plan will leave families exhausted, stressed and financially distressed.

1 CE hour available for social workers, case managers, and nurses.

5:30 PM- 6:00 PM- Registration and Dinner

The decision to transfer a family member to a nursing home can be a difficult one. The many emotions arising from such a decision may be impacted further by a complex placement process. It is the family’s responsibility to explore facilities and to make decisions about which facilities can best meet the patient’s financial, physical, and social needs, but health care providers also play a crucial role. Case managers and social workers must understand how to complete the DMA-6 and Level 1, how to navigate the options, and how to advise families on paying for nursing home care. Please join us to learn what you need to accomplish Successful Nursing Home Placements. CEs available: 1 ethics or core hour for social workers; 1 ethics or contact hour for case managers and RNs.
