Breaking the Mold:
Going Above & Beyond

OCAPS 36th Annual Conference

Live Sessions: August 24th & 25th, 2021
On-demand sessions to follow the live event

About the Conference

This year’s conference examines Adult Protective Practices (APS) that “break the mold.” A variety of practice models and tools will be presented during the plenary and on-demand sessions. These resources and tools are essential as APS staff and those who work with the aging population play a greater role in collecting evidence, substantiating reports, and testifying in legal proceedings. As APS continues to evolve, we will need to break the mold of yesterday and work together to better serve this vulnerable population.

Learning Objectives

This conference is designed to provide an opportunity to:

  • Share aspects of the law that impact those who work with older adults.

  • Highlight innovative tools and practices that can be used to meet the needs of older adults during a pandemic and beyond.

  • Elevate public awareness of exploitation and its impact on older adults during the pandemic.

  • Promote collaboration among those who serve, treat, or represent victims of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation.

  • Enhance clinical skills for daily practice, identification, investigation, and provision of adult protective services.
