For the rights of older people

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day Conference 2018 Friday 15 June 2018

WEAAD Elder Abuse Conference program

'Elder Abuse: From Prevention to Intervention’

Registrations from 8.00am.  Finish 4.00pm

This year's World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) Conference program has been developed with the theme around 'Prevention to Intervention'.

Very little research has been done on intervention and prevention strategies that produce the most effective and efficient outcome for the older person. This conference will inform delegates about the strategies developed and used by professionals in a variety of fields, for example, in the legal system and in the aged care and community sectors.
