Ethical Issues in Case Management
with Vulnerable Individuals

Purpose:
Professionals who work in the area of case management are often in a unique position. They balance the real needs of individuals and families with access to limited resources and services.  Often they are the ones who are encountering, first hand, complicated situations with vulnerable individuals and families.  There is no roadmap that outlines exactly what to do in these situations. Case managers can find themselves in a gray area of ethical issues regarding risk, competency, decision making and intervention.      We also live in a world which is very concerned about liability if there is danger or injury to a person or a group.  This session looks at the case management in situations that involve balancing risk, access to resources, confidentiality, end of life concerns, boundaries & social media.  It presents a framework for making ethical decisions for case managers in these situations.

Learning objectives:
By the conclusion of this workshop, participants will:

  1. To describe the ethical issues surrounding intervention in a manner that causes the least amount of harm and the highest quality of life.
  2. To describe the ethical issues surrounding risk and safety of vulnerable individuals and propose a framework for making decisions that respects personal choice & avoidance of liability.
  3. To describe the ethical issues surrounding confidentiality of vulnerable individuals and propose a framework for making decisions that respects privacy & avoidance of injury.
  4. To discuss ethical issues & strategies for establishing and maintaining appropriate boundaries in the areas of disclosure of personal information, handling violations of personal space, & balancing social media.
