This session of Unpacking Bedside Bioethics dives deep into the process of surrogate decision-making. Building on the previous session, “’Who Ya Gonna Call?’ When Your Patients Can’t Decide by Themselves,” this session will explore what standards surrogate decision-makers are held to, what to do when surrogates act in bad faith, and when to replace a surrogate decision-maker.

Learning Objectives: By attending this webinar, attendees will be able to:
– Identify standards for surrogate decision-making;
– Explore nuances of surrogate standards in patient cases; and
– Identify when it is ethically appropriate to replace a surrogate decision-maker.
