Resource Document on Interacting with Caregivers

Approved by the Joint Reference Committee, February 2015

In this document, we address ethical and legal issues related to involving caregivers in the treatment of patients and provide a comprehensive approach to the engagement of caregivers in the treatment process. This approach revolves around the development and implementation of a caregiver plan (CGP). It is important to note that the development of a formal CGP does not reflect current practice in the field. The discussion of a CGP in this document is for education: to describe a potential best practice. Given the complexity of managing caregivers’ involvement, practitioners may find it useful to create formal CGPs.
