About This NYSED Social Work Board Approved Workshop
Prelude to Advance Care Planning and Bioethics explores advance directives and ways to support patient self-determination through the application of medical ethics. As Social Workers, we often play an integral role on multi-disciplinary teams. As a profession, we are well suited to be mediators when there is a difference of opinion between doctor and patient.

- Consider the ethical challenges
- Identify and define four (4) key principles of medical ethics (patient autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence, and distributive justice)
- Review implementation of Medical/Physician Orders For Life-Sustaining Treatment (MOLST/POLST)
- Identify Stages of Bioethics Mediation
- Consider the role of social workers as mediators in the healthcare setting
