In some cases patients clearly lack capacity commensurate to making a decision based on principles of informed consent. In other instances there is conflict: is the patient lacking capacity, exhibiting poor judgment or do the clinical team and patient have differing goals and priorities? Deliberations are complicated by mental status, cognitive ability, pathology and culture. Further complications can include proxy, surrogate or guardian participation. Cases requiring determination of capacity are among the most complicated and nuanced confronted by care providers and administrators.
The goal of this conference is to shine the light of ethical perspectives on the issue of decision making capacity so that attendees will be able to better deliberate cases that arise in practice.
Learning Objectives include:
- Identification of ethical considerations when deliberating capacity determinations
- Identification of practical considerationas and legal considerations used for determining capacity
- Learning through deiberation of actual cases involving capacity determination
- Exploring ethical dilemmas and principles on the national issue of Ethicalo Principals of Compassionate Release of Investigationsl Drugs fgor Patient Use
Who Should Attend?
Physicians, Nurses, Social Workers, Lawyers, Risk Managers, Patient Advocates, Administrators, Pharmacisits and anyone interested in ethical issues of capacity or ethical issues of compassionate release of investigational medications.
