To Live in Dignity: Changing a Culture of Care

The presentation will highlight the importance of honoring dignity and providing care with empathy by understanding an individual's life history and personal preferences, how person-centered/directed care will be enhanced by replacing institutional, judgmental language with non-judgmental descriptions of reactions to unmet human needs and how understanding the emotions of family members can build the foundation for effective care collaboration. 

1. Participants will identify two reasons why understanding an individual's life history is important in providing person-centered/directed care. 

2. Participants will identify four emotions that can impact collaboration with family members in providing person-centered/directed care.

3. Participants will understand the importance of replacing institutional language in moving to a person-centered/directed model of care and can name three specific examples.
