This is the Elder Abuse Prevention Training presented by the State of Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division. 

Elder abuse is an under recognized problem with devastating and even life threatening consequences. 

Every day, headlines throughout the U.S. paint a grim picture of seniors who have been abused, neglected, and exploited, often by people they trust the most. Abusers may be spouses, family members, personal acquaintances, or professionals in positions of trust; or opportunistic strangers who prey on the vulnerable.

This course covers Nevada law as it pertains to Elder Abuse.  It satisfies annual training requirements for mandated reporters under NRS 200.5091.
