Training Invitation – Improving Skills in Recognising & Responding to the Abuse of Older People

Elder Abuse Information Session

Elder abuse is much more common than our society has traditionally admitted. Much of the problem has been hidden, undefined and under-reported. While elder abuse is not a new problem, our society is increasingly recognising and describing ‘elder abuse’ as a range of situations involving the maltreatment or neglect of older people by people they should be able to trust, such as family and friends.

To assist personnel working with the elderly, NCF are presenting an Elder Abuse information session on Wednesday August 31 in Hornsby.

Train-the-Trainer Workshop

The Train-The-Trainer workshop also focuses on improving skills in recognising and responding to the abuse of older people. Participants will learn how to deliver training in particular topic areas, including a background to NSW’s policy response to the abuse of older people, key considerations when abuse is detected or suspected, and responding to reports of alleged abuse.

This workshop is being held on Thursday 29 September at the Royal North Shore Hospital.
