Supported Decision-Making in the National Plan on Elder Abuse: Consensus Recommendations


“During October 2018 a Cognitive Decline Partnership Centre research team convened a forum aimed at generating consensus recommendations relating to the incorporation of supported decision-making in the National Plan on elder abuse. This day-long forum was independently facilitated, and involved 36 key stakeholders from a range of backgrounds and perspectives.

Based on discussion during the forum, and further consultation with participants in the weeks following the forum, ten key recommendations are made”
