This skill-building, interactive training is intended for entry level Adult Protective Services workers and their MDT partners (e.g. public guardians, public health nurses working with the elderly, mental health professionals, etc.) to learn how to collaborate more effectively on a personal level across disciplines. Trainees will be able to articulate the benefits, challenges and barriers to successful collaboration.

They will be able to describe the roles and functions of the other professional disciplines that are involved in elder/dependent adult abuse prevention, investigation and remediation, and how they work together to produce a safety net for victims of elder abuse. They will understand the fundamental elements critical to effective team building within a collaborative partnership and be able to employ strategies to effectively communicate with partners and resolve conflicts.
