Setting and Holding Professional Boundaries in Private Home Care
Reviews what's okay and what's not okay when it comes to staff's relationships with clients, and how to mitigate the potential risks to the agency.
- TAHC&H Event | Spring Virtual Conference | Recorded for On-Demand Access
- Presentation Date | May 12, 2022
Program Description: When we talk about boundaries in private duty home care, we sometimes cringe. We cringe because we know
that even our best staff cross professional boundaries with their clients, and some obliterate boundaries altogether. This happens despite an agency's best efforts
to put professional boundary measures in place and communicate about them constantly. When added to the stressors of daily operations, this frustrating topic
gets placed at the bottom of the priority list. "It's going to happen anyway, and our efforts backfire, so what can we do about it?" This session reviews
what's okay and what's not okay when it comes to staff's relationships with clients, and how to mitigate the potential risks to the agency.

Reporting of Perceived Bias
Bias, as defined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC COA/LSNA) is the “tendency or inclination to cause partiality, favoritism, or influence.”
Commercial bias may occur when a CNE activity promotes one or more product(s) (drugs, devices, services, software, hardware, etc.). This definition is not all inclusive and participants may use
their own interpretation in deciding if a presentation is biased. The ANCC COA is interested in the opinions and perceptions of participants at approved CNE activities, especially in the presence
of actual or perceived bias in continuing education. Therefore, ANCC invites participants to access their “ANCC Accreditation Feedback Line” to report any noted bias or conflict of interest in the
education activity. The toll free number is 1(866) 262-9730.
