UNDERSTANDING THE SURROGATE DECISION MAKERS – WHO DECIDES WHEN YOUR PATIENT OR CLIENT CAN’T?
Date: Wednesday, October 12, 2021
Presenter: Amy Gjesdahl, JD
This session 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.
