Program Overview

Course Description: 

This program will teach medical professionals how to recognize when older patients may be vulnerable to financial abuse (examples of screening tools for cognitive impairment will be provided). Attendees will learn the basics of investment fraud, common scams that the Attorney General’s Office has seen perpetrated on older adults, how older adults can protect themselves from fraud, and how to refer potential cases of fraud.
Through an interactive format, medical professionals will also learn how to identify older victims of financial exploitation and abuse. They will learn about local community resources, programs, and interventions. A case presentation will be used to walk-through screening and problem solving, along with options on how to address this growing situation.
Learning Objectives: 
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
1.  Describe the types of fraud perpetrated against older adults
2.  Discuss signs and symptoms of potential vulnerability and simple screening questions that can be used at medical appointments with older adults
3.  List local resources to prevent and intervene in cases of suspected elder abuse
