709 Breedlove Drive
Monroe, GA  30655 Map

Please join Danielle Humphrey, JD,CELA of Hurley Elder Care Law as she discusses "Guardianship: An Overview and Ethical Consideration for Healthcare Professionals". This is a complimentary lunch and ethics CEU.

The process of applying for guardianship (or conservatorship) is complex and can be overwhelming to healthcare professionals and families alike – we will review the basics of guardianship and conservatorship. These situations are likely to be unpleasant for the proposed ward as well as the proposed guardian. Such hearings demand families share humiliating and very personal stories, at times publicly shaming one another in front of a judge. What are the ethical implications of suggesting to a family that they pursue this route? We will explore the ethical principles professional social workers/case managers must confront within the guardianship process. In addition, learn what can be done to avoid Guardianship/Conservatorship. Current information on Georgia’s Advance Directive will also be provided.

CEUs available: 1 ethic or core hour for social workers (GA NASW); 1 contact hour for case managers (CCMC); 1 contact hour for RN’s (TNA)

Complimentary Lunch CEU on "Capacity and Competency" at Garden Plaza

Garden Plaza at Lawrenceville

Please join Miles Hurley, JD, CELA, for a Complimentary Lunch CEU on "Capacity, Competency, and Ethical Interventions: A Legal Discussion for Healthcare Providers"

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. Competing interests of the older adults’ family can also make helping individuals make difficult decisions even more challenging. This presentation will provide guidance and tools for assessing areas of concerns when clinicians are confronted with ethical dilemmas. The presenter will explain the difference between capacity and review of functional and cognitive capacity, an overview of the specific stages of the long-term care continuum (with supporting case studies) and a review of practical methods families may utilize to prepare for random scenarios encountered as loved one’s age.

CEUs available: 1 core hour for social workers (GA NASW); 1 contact hour for case managers (CCMC); 1 contact hour for RNs (TNA).
