The United Nations General Assembly has designated June 15 as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. This is one day in the year when the world voices its opposition to the abuse and suffering inflicted on older people. On this day in 2018, we are holding our ‘Protecting the rights, choices and freedoms of older people living in residential aged care facilities’ seminar to highlight this important issue.
This seminar will present a range of information about the different aspects of elder abuse, the challenges, ethical and forensic aspects. This will enhance the aged care sector’s ability to develop innovative approaches to improving care that is designed to respect and enhance the interest of the older person.We have a diverse line up of speakers including a coroner, forensic pathologist, the Aged Care Complaints Commissioner and Susan Alberti AC. This is a unique opportunity not to be missed!
