The Lichtenberg Financial Decision Screening Scale is a brief 10-item screening scale designed to assess decisional ability at the point at which an vulnerable adult is making a significant financial decision. The webinar will review the instructions for administration, review screening questions and scoring and discuss case studies using the scale. Register hereThere is no charge for this webinar.
