If you haven’t yet registered for the 16th annual Geriatric Services Conference, and are inspired by this year’s conference theme Connect. Collaborate. Create., visit the conference website to learn more and to register here. This year’s keynote speakers include Carole Estabrooks, Canada Research Chair in Knowledge Translation, Schools of Nursing and Public Health, University of Alberta; and Grant Gillett, Professor Biomedical Ethics, University of Dunedin, New Zealand.

In addition to the keynote speakers, in the afternoon, participants will be able to choose from a variety of workshops, including one presented by Jenny Young, MSW, MA, and Gerrit Clements, JD, on the right to live at risk. Deciding whether, when and how to intervene in the choices of persons who choose to engage in risk activities (such as eating when at risk of aspiration or returning to an unsafe home from hospital) is a complex challenge. In this workshop a decision-making process grounded in ethical principles will be discussed. This robust comprehensive process may be used to reach decisions that can be ethically and legally justified.
