Ethical Issues and End-of-Life Considerations in Dementia Management

This course is a recorded session from the 2016 online conference “Maximizing Functional Outcomes for Patients With Dementia.” Individuals with dementia and their loved ones face many challenges, including functional decline, loss of independence, and decisions related to end-of-life medical and social interventions, among others. This session reviews key principles and medical-legal precedents related to the ethical issues that SLPs might encounter when working with individuals with dementia, focusing on changes in communication, decision-making capacity, and ability to sustain nutrition and hydration. The conference included a total of 13 sessions, with the broad goal of describing a range of evidence-based clinical care techniques to get to the heart of patient-centered dementia care.
