National Seniors Day Webinar with CCEL – Responding to Elder Abuse: A Legal and Ethical Overview to Enhance your Practice


26 September 2018

By Benedicte Schoepflin

 

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, National Director of the Canadian Centre for Elder Law, 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.
 

  • The presentation will be delivered in English with simultaneous interpretation in French.
     
  • Participants will have an opportunity to ask the presenter questions via teleconference, following the presentation.
     
  • Questions are welcome in both official languages. Please inform Laurie of your language preference when you register.

This webinar is organized and hosted by the Policy Centre for Victim Issues,
Department of Justice Canada
