Ethics At The End of Life 

Area Agency on Aging Educational Webinar - 3 CEU's


Ethics are at the root of all service and professional practices - and guide our decisions and actions on a daily basis as we struggle to "do the right thing." The end of life presents particularly difficult questions and dilemmas that preparation and thought must be given to. This workshop will explore some of the ethical principles that guide this thinking and help the participant explore and articulate actions and perspectives that support dignity and compassion in end of life concerns. Since we all have our own ideas about what is right and what is wrong - and methods to tell the difference - it is imperative to ground ourselves in principles that guide our professional decision making to protect the public, the practitioner and the profession we represent.


  • Increase self-awareness and develop an ability to articulate the interplay of personal values and professional behavior regarding end of life concerns 
  • Identify the components and benefits of advance directives - and effective documentation and communication of these wishes
  • Discuss the ethical nature of end of life care and decisions
  • Recognize difference and diversity in attitudes and responses to death, dying and bereavement
  • Identify resources and interventions most helpful in assisting clients and families through this phase of decision making and transition
