Understanding the Surrogate Decision Makers- Who Decides When Your Patient or Client Can’t

Presented By: Attorney Amy Gjesdahl, JD
Date: Wednesday, February 17, 2021
Time: 10:00 AM – 11:00

This session, offered in connection with Amita Behavioral Medicine, 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.
