Channel 10’s coverage of OPAN Training and Framework
The Older Person’s Advocacy Network (OPAN) was proud to have its new resources, the Talk to Us First training program, and the National Elder Abuse Prevention and Advocacy Framework, launched by the Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care Hon Ken Wyatt AM MP at Advocare in Perth. Talk to Us First was developed by Altura Learning on behalf of OPAN to increase awareness of aged care providers about consumers’ rights and the value that advocacy services can bring to aged care. The Framework provides a basis for nationally consistent approaches to elder abuse support and prevention.
Listen to OPAN CEO Craig Gear, Advocare CEO Diedre Timms, and Minister Ken Wyatt talk to 10News Perth about this world first framework, the prevalence of elder abuse in our community, and the whole-society approach needed to tackle elder abuse across Australia.
