You will learn to use a variety of tools to educate and assess the persons understanding of the decisions they make (capacity and competency) to ensure people are making informed choices.

The Course provides broad information on directives in general and specific information on LMD including:
- Overview and personal challenge
- Measuring competency
- Legal and ethical considerations
- Client/family education
- Helping individual’s complete directives
- Reviewing/updating directives
- Managing directives in your setting
