UNDERSTANDING THE SURROGATE DECISION MAKERS – WHO DECIDES WHEN YOUR PATIENT OR CLIENT CAN’T?

Date: Thursday, June 24th, 2021
Time: 12:00pm-1:00pm
Presenter: Amy Gjesdahl, JD

This session, offered in connection with Transitions Palliative Care and Hospice, will discuss the types of decision-makers authorized by Illinois law to make decisions on behalf of a disabled adult including agents under Powers of Attorney, trustees, guardians, and health care surrogates. Before you can successfully work with these decision-makers, you need to (1) understand whether the decision-maker is legally entitled to make the decision at issue, and (2) know the extent of a decision-maker’s authority and what ethical standards he or she should apply when making decisions.

This presentation will discuss these issues, and more, along with questions commonly asked of elder law attorneys.
