Two Upcoming Elder Abuse Webinars

The Department of Justice Elder Justice Initiative has announced an Office of Victims of Crimes webinar on MDT Cross-Training: Prosecutors and MDTs, scheduled for August 2, 2018 at 2 edt.

Here is a description of the webinar

Please join the EJI webinar on August 9, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. eastern time, as Nicole Sato, Deputy District Attorney, provides an overview of the role of a prosecutor at the MDT table. Learn how to strengthen collaboration with your team’s prosecutor by delving into their role, contributions, and professional perspective.

 Join in a discussion about the ethical responsibilities of a prosecutor and the importance of multidisciplinary collaboration in the fight against elder abuse. The discussion will include the prosecutor’s perspective on what makes a good case; what are their parameters on an MDT; what they get out of MDT collaborations and how best to collaborate; and what they contribute. Plus, we will clear up some common assumptions and misconceptions regarding the parameters of their work.

The following day, August 10, 2018 at 2 p.m. edt, another  webinar will be held, focusing on Elder Justice Initiative: The Role of Judges in an Elder Abuse Case

Judge Karen Howze will discuss the dynamics of elder abuse, relevant issues such as cognitive capacity, expert witnesses that may be required, reasonable courtroom accommodations, the advantages of elder abuse multidisciplinary teams, and the importance of judicial leadership on the issue of elder abuse. Judges play a critical role in adjudicating the wide array of elder abuse, neglect and financial exploitation cases that come before them. Elder abuse and fraud enter courtrooms both directly in civil and criminal cases, as well as indirectly (e.g., in the context of a guardianship proceeding), so there are many critical issues to discuss.
