Adult Protective Services’ (APS) mission is to protect older adults and people with disabilities from abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation in the community.
The theme of this year’s APS Conference is, Protecting Vulnerable Adults is Everyone’s Business. “It’s Everyone’s Business” is our established and ongoing campaign which aims to educate the public on how to recognize abuse, neglect and financial exploitation of this vulnerable population and how to become an agent of positive change.
As with this campaign, this year’s conference seeks to inform, strengthen partnerships, educate, and increase understanding about the population we serve and how we can better serve them.
The Interview for Decisional Ability (IDA) tool was originally designed for use by APS and has potential to be more widely used in venues like nursing homes, medical practices, etc. The webinar will introduce the Cornell-Penn IDA (Interview for Decisional Ability) and explain how it was developed from inception through roll out and evaluation. The webinar will particularly focus on the need for a standardized tool to assess decisional ability, the basic principles of the interview tool and how and when it is best utilized. In addition, the webinar will describe the training curriculum and results of recent research on the tools validity. A short video demonstrating the interview will accompany the presentation. Lessons learned and future directions followed by audience Q+A will complete the presentation.
This webinar will be presented by Veronica LoFaso, MD, Robert Abrams, MD, and Pamela Ansell, MSW.

Holding Space: Innovation and Values in Anti-Trafficking Work
The 2020 FNUSA Conference will take place on March 18-19 in Miami, FL. This year we will explore how anti-trafficking work has grown and evolved since the passage of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act in 2000. Twenty years later, survivors are receiving more compassionate and effective services and advocates have forged pathways to influence policy. Community leaders across the country are developing new approaches, tools, and partnerships to address human trafficking. These innovations are changing the way we work together and our collective impact.
However, some challenges linger. Survivors still fight for a seat at the table, collaboration remains difficult, and entire populations are overlooked and underserved. As awareness of human trafficking increases, prosecutions are down and human rights protections are being stripped away. Using conference sessions, networking time, and physical space, we will confront these challenges and build solutions that are intersectional, representative, and rooted in human rights.

This conference will explore gaps in services, discover new and improved practices, share cutting edge research, and motivate participants to explore positive case outcomes for youth involved in the delinquency system.
