ELNEC Geriatric Module 6: Ethics and Goals of Care

Green Clock Hours: 1.25

Welcome to the 6th module of the ELNEC-Geriatric curriculum, Ethics and Goals of Care. It is rare that we do not witness at least one ethical dilemma a week because of a lack of goals of care, unknown decisional capacity, undertreatment of pain that promotes suffering, and so many other examples. Ethical issues and dilemmas are inherent in care provided to older adults and their families in palliative care. It is important for you to be aware of and have access to a wide variety of professional codes and standards that serve to facilitate resolution of ethical dilemmas. One of the most important and privileged roles you have is that you individually and collectively serve as advocates for older adults by fostering communication about healthcare decisions. This role of advocacy is vital, as older adults and their families depend on us to assist them in navigating a complex, confusing, and multi-layered healthcare system.
