In this session we will review the Ohio’s adult protection laws and limitations. We will share case scenarios, interventions and strategies for successful community partnerships to combat elder abuse and exploitation. By the end of this session you should be able to review the NASW Code of Ethics and mandatory reporting responsibilities, know the revisions to the Ohio Adult Protective Services program laws and regulations, know the Ohio mandatory reporter requirements, including immunity and the failure to report. Recognize common characteristics and risk factors of victims and perpetrators, and know the definitions and differences of capacity, competency and self-determination.
