As professionals in the field of aging, it is important to recognize ethical issues that can arise when working with older adults. There are a variety of areas in which ethical issues can emerge, including complex family dynamics, end-of-life wishes, preserving dignity and respect, promoting independence, and keeping the individual safe. There are various factors that can make older adults vulnerable to abuse, neglect and ill intent. Learning about these potential trouble spots can help us understand how to reduce the risk of harm, how to advocate for the older adult and how to report issues to the proper authorities when necessary. Register for this webinar to learn more about the ethical considerations of working with older adults and the resources available to help support professionals and family caregivers.
