In this NCCD-hosted webinar moderated by Jennifer Cotter, an associate director at NCCD, David Burnes, PhD, introduces the idea of goal attainment scaling (GAS), a client-centered tool to generate intervention plans and measure case resolution in APS and other elder abuse response programs. GAS allows workers to capture nuanced aspects of APS work and its various moving parts involved in case intervention/progression. Without a tool that measures overall case resolutions, the effectiveness of different APS intervention models/practices cannot be systematically compared. Dr. Burnes is an assistant professor at the University of Toronto, Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, and an affiliate scientist at Baycrest Health Sciences, Rotman Research Institute. Dr. Burnes’ research centers on understanding and preventing elder abuse in the community, developing/evaluating interventions, and developing intervention outcome measures.
