In this episode, Dr. Allan Barsky focuses on ethical issues in end-of-life decision making. In order to assist clients and families with end-of-life choices, Dr. Barsky argues that social workers need to be aware of ethical issues that may arise in relation to self-determination, informed consent, mental capacity, and principles such as the sanctity of life, client autonomy, and judicious management of resources. He discusses a model for engaging clients, family members, and co-professionals in discussions and problem-solving processes when conflict about end-of-life decision making arises.
