DESCRIPTION
This full day workshop will focus on increasingly common areas of capacity assessment for those who work with older adults in independent practice, long term care and other settings.  This workshop will present a review of foundational knowledge and of the research of what is capacity, how does clinical evaluation overlap with the legal context, and how does capacity change as we get older. Participant will learn about medical consent, independent living capacity, financial capacity, health care capacity, relationship capacity, etc.   Specific tools used to evaluate different capacities will be emphasized.
