CE: Elder Abuse Seminar
November 10 @ 7:30 am - 4:45 pm EST$225
November 10, 2020 – Lansing
Using a top-down and bottom-up approach, participants will learn techniques to improve their
assessment, investigation, documentation (written and photographic) of vulnerable residents with
possible abuse and neglect related injuries. An overview of contributors to falls will be presented as
well as techniques to differentiate and document witnessed falls from being found down. Forensic
terminology will be presented in a format immediately useful to professionals from multiple
disciplines. A series of instructive injury slides will be shown to demonstrate patterned injuries and
injuries in various stages of healing.
Participants will learn what would trigger the need for internal and external investigations of possible
abuse, neglect or significant unexplained injury. They will also learn the elements needed to conduct
a thorough, competent, fact-based and unbiased internal investigation of known or suspected abuse.
