FREE WEBINAR from NLNPEA on January 27...
The Adult Protection Act:
A Regional Perspective
The Adult Protection Act came into effect on June 30, 2014. This Act governs the delivery of services to adults in need of protective intervention because they are at risk of abuse and neglect and do not understand or appreciate that risk.
Our webinar will feature a presenter from each of the four regional health authorities to discuss how elder abuse cases under this Act are reported, investigated, and followed up in their region. The discussion will also explore any trends and/or challenges and solutions that have arisen over the six months this Act has been in place. This presentation will be of interest to service providers, community workers, and seniors and their family members.
When: January 27 from 11:00am to 12:15pm (Island time)
