Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD) program

The Abuse Prevention and Response Protocol (APRP) is a policy framework for the PDD program. The Protocol identifies processes and accountability measures related to abuse prevention and response. It identifies PDD stakeholders’ responsibilities in preventing and responding to abuse situations that affect individuals receiving PDD funded supports. It is a requirement for staff who work with vulnerable individuals to be trained on how to prevent and respond to abuse situations.

Description:The webcast will provide an overview of the APRP that is accessible to a broader audience online. While this presentation is very helpful in introducing people to the issues covered under APRP, it is not intended to replace face-to-face training on APRP provided by PDD funded service providers, FMS Administrators and PDD.

Topics covered will include:

  • Adaptation to training
  • The purpose and recent updates of the protocol
  • Definition and types of abuse and the scope of abuse situations
  • Reporting abuse and follow up process
  • Awareness of other legislations associated with responding to allegation of abuse (e.g. duty to report)
