The Ethics of Caregiving in an Increasingly Complex Healthcare    System. 


DATE(S):
April 9, 2021
TIME:
ONLINE
LOCATION:
LIVE WEBINAR


BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
 Approximately one in three families in the U.S. cares for an aging, disabled or chronically ill family member. The percentage of families caring for a loved one is expected to increase dramatically over the next decade due to many anticipated changes in our healthcare system and federal entitlement programs. The ethics surrounding caregiving challenges some of our deepest beliefs about family, the sanctity of life, dignity of personhood, and death. This workshop takes a close look at some of the most important ethical issues related to caregiving from the perspective of family members and professionals caring for these individuals. Special emphasis will be made to apply the discussion of ethical concerns in the workshop to practical caregiving topics through case studies and personal exploration of participant’s values.  Satisfies the IDFPR ethics requirement for social workers and psychologists.

What Drug is my Client Using?

 


DATE(S):
May 7, 2021
TIME:
ONLINE.
LOCATION:
LIVE WEBINAR


BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
Recognizing and documenting the physical symptoms of client substance abuse has become more challenging as many new drugs of abuse are not detectable on a standard urine drug screening test.  Whether the substance is an exotic designer synthetic narcotic drug such as Metoniazene, a counterfeit prescription drug such as Metizolam, or an over the counter drug such as Benadryl, all intoxicating drugs produce physical symptoms when consumed at abusive levels.  Counselors, therapists, and other licensed professionals should be alert to the signs that a client has relapsed with a substance that is not easily detected in urine drug screening tests.  This live webinar will provide attendees with the observational skills to recognize and document unique eye clues and matching physical clues displayed by persons under the influence. The new guidelines promulgated under the Illinois recreational cannabis law for workplace cannabis use investigations will also be discussed.
