Today’s healthcare climate is more complex than ever. Factors like technology, diversity, social mobility, mental health awareness, chronic conditions, and a litigious culture all combine to increase the likelihood of facing ethical dilemmas in the day-to-day operations of senior living. Using real-life case studies, we will also examine methods for taking an objective look at subjective decisions. This one-hour webinar will examine the landscape of ethical issues in long-term care, the true definition of "Ethics", why we need to focus on ethics rather than simply making "good decisions," and myths about ethical behavior.
