Competence with Compassion: Ethical Decision-Making in the Changing Culture of Long-Term Care

This new ‘Train-The-Trainer’ package looks at the ethical issues that come into play while providing care in the LTC setting. It uses two 3-to 5-minute video excerpts (one involving a ‘minor’ struggle between a staff member and an elderly woman, and the other involving a well-intentioned Independent Living resident whose ‘forceful’ actions toward his wife, a resident in a nursing home, are perceived as abusive) to document many of the concerns and ethical responsibilities that are integral to providing quality care. The extensive training package includes a four-module curriculum, two video excerpts, a PowerPoint presentation, reproducible handouts, and supplemental reading on responsibility and commitment to ethics in LTC caregiving. This field-tested package will provide a realistic approach to understanding and making decisions about care issues that pose ethical dilemmas.
