Tough Choices in Home-based Care

Headshot of Ed Ratner, MD
This is the second session of the Center for Bioethics' Mini Bioethics Academy, designed for people to learn about and foster discussion on bioethical challenges in today's society. Mini Bioethics Academy is open to anyone interested in learning more about bioethics.
Discussions of bioethics typically focus on care in the hospital, while ethical conflicts occur in all settings.  For families and community-based organizations, there are frequent ethical conflicts in home-based health care.  These include: whether a frail or disabled person can return or remain at home, whether driving or other activities should be permitted and who is responsible for providing needed care.  This presentation will offer some basic principles and approaches to ethical issues in home care.  Those attending will be asked to discuss a number of actual cases. This seminar should be useful to families providing elder care and health care professionals in all settings.
