F2: Ethics: Selected Issues


This will be a live session only.

This session will focus on some selected ethical issues. Incorporated in this session is the collaborative relationship and shared responsibility of the caregiver and their employer to support ethical practice. While many of these topics are not new, it is hoped they will be timely to the changes in how we provide care. While not in detail, it is hoped this presentation and discussion will prompt further exploration of each issue. Issues to be presented: ethics of self-care so the caregiver is ready to serve, ethics of being competent both as an individual and provider of Evidence-Based-Practices, ethics of Boundary Crossing as more services are provided in a variety of settings, and ethics of Client Centric Services and Language with some of the challenges faced by individuals and families. The presentation will end with a process that will help resolve ethical issues which also demonstrates the collaborative relationship between caregiver and employer.
