June 14, 2023 -  Attempted Suicide in a Patient with a DNR Order:  What Should You Do?

Suicide is an important problem among older adults.  In deciding how to respond to a patient with a DNR order who has attempted suicide, the fact pattern really matters! Patients make suicide decisions that can be rational but regrettable. Having a policy to address this contingency can be extremely helpful. Hear our interdisciplinary panel analyze multiple cases involving attempted suicide in patients with DNR orders and learn how to distinguish cases in which it is reasonable to honor the DNR order versus those in which it is not.   

Attend this webinar and sharpen your clinical medical ethics knowledge and skills. Be better prepared to address ethical dilemmas and make a unique contribution to patient care in your health care setting.

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED for this webinar.
