Purpose of the Forum
The aim of the forum is to educate and inform our sector workforce (including aged care workers, allied health and social workers, police, legal support and advocates) who may witness or need to respond to incidents of Elder Abuse.
“This forum was quite unique in that it provided information to an audience made up of multiple sectors and hopefully will assist all sectors to have a better understanding of the available responses to elder abuse.”
“Very comprehensive presentation with a different perspective.”
“Informative well-curated session with a really strong line up. The Q&A in particular was v interesting, giving the speakers a chance to talk about the more controversial issues like third party reporting.”
We heard from four (4) speakers representing the sectors of law enforcement, legal, health and aged care. They provided information on their protocols, processes and the scope of their elder abuse response framework.
