In the government’s quest to defend and combat against all forms of elder abuse, the DOJ provides a number of Elder Justice Webinars to educate professionals about how to prevent, detect, and correct potential instances of abuse or neglect.
Health care providers are expected to conduct internal investigations when there is suspected abuse or neglect. Even for experienced interviewers, older adults can still present some unique challenges as interview subjects. With more attention in the criminal justice system being directed towards the issue of elder abuse, forensic interviews with older adults are even more important.
This webinar covers tips and techniques for interviewing older adults and shows how forensic interviewing can help older adults in situations of abuse or neglect.
Federal agencies are teaming up to combat the growing problem of elder financial exploitation. The DOJ offers a webinar, hosted by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, which encourages coordination among law enforcement, financial institutions, and adult protective service agencies.

The “Using RN Continuing Education as a Weapon Against Rising Costs and Threats to Quality” webinar on Tuesday, March 18, from 2-3pm EST will focus on how the current LTC environment can be improved by an intentional, comprehensive continuing education program for RNs that prepares them to achieve Board Certification.
The modest investments LTC facility administrators have made in this program have had a positive impact on the LTC RN workforce, their effectiveness on the job, and their RN turnover rate in a LTC environment characterized by rising acuity of LTC patients, tighter reimbursements, and more stringent regulations. Administrators are finding that the benefits of this program to their residents and financial bottom line far outweigh its costs.
Correlate the attainment of RN board certification with standards of clinical excellence
Explore the relationships between comprehensive education, RN retention, and overall quality of care outcomes
Provide data supporting the business case of comprehensive RN education and professional development investment
