Cornerstones of Care

Priscilla Camp will be presenting at an education program designed for professionals presented by the Institute on Aging entitled CAPACITY: WHAT IS IT? HOW DO WE ASSESS IT? WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE LOSE IT?

Priscilla will co-lead the workshop Protect Your Clients, Protect Yourself: A Psychologist and Attorney’s Roadmap for Issues of Capacity, Decision-Making and Undue Influence in an afternoon session on September 16.

During this workshop, the presenters will explore the complex issues of diminished capacity, consent for care, evaluation of capacity and challenges of undue influence. Using case law, case studies and ethical regulations, they will introduce a road map to guide your actions from the onset of care, at difficult junctures of care management and when you suspect undue influence.
