Course Overview: The purpose of this seminar is to inspire administrators in the long-term care (LTC) settings of assisted living, adult residential and skilled nursing to assist residents in defining what is the right end of life care decision for them and how to address the challenges in doing so. We will explore the significant disparities in end-of-life care planning and decision making by people of minority ethnic backgrounds compared with members of mainstream English-speaking background populations. Attendees will walk away with practical knowledge and best practices to implement in their LTC setting.

Course Objective(s):

At the conclusion of this presentation, attendees will be able to…

  • Articulate a definition of bioethics and identify bioethical principles utilized in health care decision making
  • Understand bioethical issues faced in end-of-life care and how to appropriately address them when they are encountered in the care context
  • Communicate the importance of advance care planning
  • Comprehend the appropriate use of POLST forms and understand components of EOLOA
