Elder Justice for All-WEB

ID: 4392WEB

Over 10,000 baby boomers will be turning 65 every day for the next 17 years and 1 in 10 will be a victim of elder abuse thus creating 1,000 victims a day! To address this ethical dilemma and human rights issue, multiple stakeholders gathered to create the Elder Justice Roadmap. As professionals and advocates, it is increasingly important that we familiarize ourselves with this roadmap and assess how we can participate no matter at what level of practice we serve - micro, mezzo or macro. This webinar will help professionals outside of Adult Protective Services envision a roadmap to elder justice through lecture, discussion and group exercises and explore what we can do to meet the goal of elder justice for all. Social work ethics will be compared to the Adult Protective Services' Code of Ethics in demonstrating how the roadmap may be interpreted among professions. *This workshop does not qualify for NBCC clock hours in ethics.

Medical Aid in Dying: The Basics-WEB

ID: 1139WEB

In August of 2019, the NJ Medical Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act (MAID) took effect. MAID allows an adult New Jersey resident, who has the capacity to make health care decisions and who has been determined to be terminally ill, to obtain medication to self-administer to end their life. This webinar will examine the details and ethical implications of the law for both patients and providers. We will explore the roles that social workers, care managers and others may play as patients seek to access medical aid in dying. These roles could include capacity evaluations, assistance in finding providers participating in MAID, counseling on end-of-life care alternatives, witnessing documents, and attending deaths. We will also review the data on assisted dying in Oregon, which may help to guide our own work. [Elective for Gerontology Certificate Program]
