From the Instructor:
GRN 245 is required for the End of Life and Behavioral and Cognitive Care Certificates at PCC, but is useful for anyone practicing in any gerontology-related practice area, for anyone interested in guardianship of an adult family member, or for anyone who is interested in the possible practice area of guardianship (which will require training beyond this course.) It is specific to Oregon, but uses the values and practice standards of the National Guardianship Association. Material includes decision-making, what guardians can do, how to work with guardians effectively, the guardianship court process, alternatives, and an overview of how to get more training if you are interested in this as a practice area.
Course Specific Requirements:
This entire class is online, and participants should log in and begin on the first day that the course is open. The course format accommodates extra questions and discussion about guardianship in different practice areas. Material about how to use the online system is available once you log into the class, and the PCC gerontology program often offers an orientation session at the beginning of each quarter. This class can be taken pass/ fail, or for a grade. Contact me for questions about this course or for advising (if you are a Gerontology student): joanne.long@pcc.edu, 971-722-3475.
