The Swinburne Wellbeing Clinic for Older Adults presents an exciting series of seminars featuring guest presenters who are experts in the field of mental health and ageing to cover issues relating to late life conditions and treatments. In the next seminar, Simon Curran will present a lecture titled "Elder mediation: Current practices in aged care and community settings". 


This interactive presentation will discuss the role of Elder Mediation in the aged care sector and in the community.  The underlying principles and structure of mediation will be discussed, as well as the state, national and international legal frameworks in which mediation occurs.  The benefits and limitations of mediation in resolving disputes involving older adults will be considered.   The current and potential use of mediation in the context of alleged elder abuse will be explored using the family law system as a comparator.
