Responding to Elder Abuse: A Legal and Ethical Overview to Enhance your Practice

National Senior’s Day,
Monday, October 1, 2018,
from 1:00-3:00 PM EST

Do you work with older adults? Do you develop elder abuse policy for your agency?
Do you struggle with the challenge of how to respond to concerns about elder abuse in a manner that respects an older person’s rights to autonomy, privacy, respectful treatment, and safety?

In this session, Krista James will provide a national comparative overview of laws that form part of your elder abuse response toolkit, and identify ethical principles to support best practice with older adults who are being harmed by someone they trust or care about.

Pre-registration is required.
