The perfect course for catching up on the latest developments
Get a quick refresher on the most significant developments in elder law. In three short hours, the faculty will fill you in on the year’s highlights. You’ll get the latest word on decisions from the courts and regulations from legislators and agencies.
Join us to hear about:
• The Year in Review – learn about the latest development in elder law over the past year. Take away a quick summary of recent legislative, regulatory and policy development in elder law and brief summaries of the most significant cases over the past 12 months.
• Supported Decision Making – What Does This Mean and Is This an Alternative to Guardianship? (ETHICS) – We will examine decision making capacity and the supported decision making model from the perspectives of a forensic psychiatrist, neuropsychologist and a lawyer. We will attempt to answer the following questions: Why did the ABA urge supported decision making as a less restrictive alternative to guardianship? How can this model help your client with cognitive impairments, including dementia, avoid guardianship or at least a less restrictive guardianship? What are the ethical implications? Legal implications? Does this set the stage for undue influence -good or bad?
• LTC Facilities and COVID-19, Enrollment and Community HealthChoices - Join us as we examine the crisis of LTC facilities and COVID-19. We will also provide updates on the NF, HCBS and LTSS enrollment process. Explore updates on the Community HealthChoices managed care program as well.
