The Health Law Section of the Minnesota State Bar Association is presenting a timely CLE: “Who Calls the Shots? Exploring the Authority of the Principal, Agent, and Provider under a Health Care Directive.”
Date: Friday, April 18, 2014 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM
Venue: Salon D / Radisson Hotel Roseville
Learn about drafting, implementing, relying on, and troubleshooting health care directives from both the provider and consumer perspectives, including identifying legal standards and desired language, honoring the wishes of the principal (such as who can visit and what treatments the provider can reasonably provide), weighing factors when determining how to follow the directive, determining when a principal is capable of making decisions and the agent has authority to act, addressing potential conflicts such as patient confidentiality vs. family information and health care providers preparing directives, signing a POLST or DNR/DNI as an agent, interpreting authority of a financial power of attorney as opposed to a health care agent, and opening up dialogue for improvements for all parties involved.
Please join us for breakfast beginning at 7:30 a.m., followed by the program from 8:00 – 9:00 a.m.
