If you work with older patients and are concerned about potential elder abuse issues, Seniors Rights Victoria will be at Monash Medical Centre next week to deliver a free, one-hour training session.
This one-hour interactive workshop at lunchtime on Tuesday 3 September will explore the complexities of working with older people where there may be questions about their capacity.
