Presented by ASA’s Mental Healthcare and Aging Network (MHAN)
This web seminar is based on the 2016 Aging in America Conference workshop “Doing More With Less: Replicable, Innovative and Cost-Saving Measures in Adult Protective Services.”
Recorded on Thursday, July 28, 2016
At the heart of Adult Protective Services (APS) work is multi-disciplinary cooperation; though faced with ever-increasing caseloads and case complexities, APS staff work across disciplines and agencies to ensure that client services are minimally affected by these challenges. This presentation covers the National Adult Protective Services Association’s recommendations for cost-effective, promising practices to promote continued program and service successes.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
- Describe the current landscape of policy issues related to APS;
- Outline key recommendations for cost-effective promising practices in APS; and,
- Highlight the latest innovations for implementing recommended APS practices.
Andrew Capehart is assistant director of the National Adult Protective Services Association in Washington, D.C.
