Keswick is hosting the next in-person CEU program. Social workers and case managers are welcome to attend. Joanna Frankel, MSW, LCSW-C of Frankel Care will give a presentation on the Ethical Dilemmas In Dementia Care.
When there is a diagnosis of permanent dementia like Alzheimer’s disease, numerous ethical dilemmas arise. Ethical challenges occur when clinicians are navigating communication and end-of-life with persons with dementia. There are also ethical issues involving privacy and confidentiality when the families of persons with dementia are involved. How do we balance self-determination with commitment to client/primacy of patient? Join us for this interactive ethical discussion on how to best serve persons with dementia and their families.
Joanna Frankel, MSW, LCSW-C is a graduate of Towson University with a Bachelor’s in both psychology and gerontology.
