WEADD Webinar: Measuring the Impact of Your Event

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

1:00-2:00 pm EST

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day provides the elder justice community with an opportunity to draw attention to the issue of elder abuse and to encourage action in each of our communities. Many local and state agencies put a lot of time and effort into staging events for WEAAD, but they may not give as much thought to capturing the impact of these events. Measuring the impact of our WEAAD efforts can provide critical feedback for future efforts and show funders, policy makers, researchers, and others how and why these events are important.

Join the Administration for Community Living (ACL) for a webinar on how to measure the impact of your WEAAD events using a “logic model” – a visual representation of your activities, outputs, and expected outcomes.

Webinar participants will:

  • Learn what kinds of preparation is needed to measure the impact of an event;
  • Learn how to create a “logic model” for measuring the outcomes of an event;
  • Practice creating a logic model

Webinar on Disrespect: Elder Abuse and Native Americans

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

2:00 pm-3:30 pm EST

Most elders describe abuse as disrespect and using this terminology will get a more robust response during an investigation. This webinar will present language and approaches that will help with the communication and investigation of elder abuse among Native American elders. Jacque Gray will discuss how her research has helped to inform practice with Native American elders.

Dr. Gray is a research professor for the Department of Population Health and the associate director for Rural Health for indigenous programs at the University of North Dakota (UND) School of Medicine and Health Sciences, in Grand Forks.
