Resident choice is at the heart of the new regulations, but sometimes, just like in our own lives, the choices resident’s make can put them at risk. Often long-term care providers want to honor resident choice, but are afraid to do so because of fear of injury or risk of liability.  The key is to find the balance between providing good care and keeping elders safe, on the one hand, and enabling choice which may involve risk but enhances quality of life, on the other.

So how does the care community accommodate resident preferences when the choice is seen as having some potential risk for a negative outcome?  Hear what members of the team that developed A Process for Care Planning for Resident Choice have to say about the processes you can put in place in your organization that will help you honor choice while mitigating risk.

This educational offering has been reviewed by the National Continuing Education Review Service (NCERS) of the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB) and approved for 1 clock hours and 1 participant hours.
