Elder Abuse Ontario presents:
Elder Abuse: Response Strategies for PSW's

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018
1:30 PM to 3:00 PM EST

REGISTER HERE

Whether they work in regulated or community-based sectors, Personal Support Workers play an incredibly important role in the prevention and intervention of elder abuse. Regularly interacting with their clientèle, PSW's get a glimpse into a person's life like no other service provider can. They are ideally positioned to not only recognize the signs of abuse but to also take action and ensure that people get the support and education needed to mitigate further incidents of mistreatment.



Join EAO in this engaging webinar about PSW's roles in preventing, responding and reporting situations of abuse among their older patients and/or clients.

 

This webinar will:

  • Provide participants with a brief overview of Elder Abuse
  • Discuss the indicators, risk factors, and barriers to reporting abuse
  • Outline appropriate response and safety planning measures for a variety of situations,
  • Highlight current legislation and best practices around reporting, and
  • Provide information on provincial resources
  •
