Webinar: Assessing Cognitive Capacity in Elder Abuse Cases

Monday, August 21, 2017

2-3 pm ET

Please join our webinar on Monday, August 21, 2:00–3:00 p.m. e.t., as Talitha Guinn-Shaver, MDT Technical Advisor, Elder Justice Initiative, U.S. Department of Justice, hosts a discussion with Bonnie Olsen, Ph.D., Professor of Clinical Family Medicine, Vice Chair, Academic Affairs, Department of Family Medicine, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Alhambra, California.

This webinar will assist all professionals who work on elder abuse multidisciplinary teams (MDT) to better understand the issue of decisional capacity. Dr. Olsen will provide several contexts where decisional capacity is central to case formulation and resolution. She will present the components of a good assessment, with examples of how to collect and integrate relevant information. Dr. Olsen will also discuss the importance of maintaining a client-centered orientation so that MDTs maintain an awareness of the need to balance the client’s self-determination with the need for protection. Through this webinar, participants will learn how to:

  • Recognize situations where decisional capacity is relevant to elder abuse case management and resolution.
  • Identify the factors to consider when evaluating an older adult’s decisional capacity.
  • Understand the importance of maintaining a client-centered orientation when assessing decisional capacity.
