Protecting the Elder Clients and Protecting the Provider: Isn’t the Goal the Same?

Event Description

Deadline to Register: April 18, 2018

Co-Sponsored by the Health Law and Elder Law Sections.

Breakfast and registration will start at 7:30 a.m.  The CLE program will begin at 8:00 a.m.   

Program Description:

Abuse, neglect and exploitation of seniors has made headlines and recently grabbed the attention of the governor and legislature in MN.  An elder law attorney and a provider attorney will address the intersection between health law and elder law from a legal and ethical perspective.  Both will review the current and proposed laws to protect vulnerable adults, and both will show how advising providers regarding how to implement the laws protects the provider client from liability and the seniors the provider serves.  Case scenarios will be discussed, and best practices will be recommended from an ethical and legal standpoint.
