Advanced Care Planning - Ethical Concerns

Medical advances have enabled health care organizations to offer an ever-increasing catalogue of treatments and procedures to prolong life. These advances, while often beneficial, do not always improve quality of life and sometimes even extend the dying process. Promoting Advance Care Planning (ACP) in a medical setting can help patients decide when the burdens of treatments outweigh the benefits, in accordance with their own goals, values, and preferences. Prima facie, this appears to be the right thing for health care organizations to do. This presentation will discuss potential ethical objections to ACP and ethical responses to these objections, in order to ultimately support the conclusion that ACP is indeed the right thing to do. Speaker is Theresa Kircher, MSW, LCSW.
