Course Overview

Abuse & Neglect Prevention 

(1 CEU Hour) 

This training will provide an in-depth look at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) reporting requirements for Occurrences. 

We review Chapter 2, Section 4.2 - Occurrence Reporting; Chapter 26, Section 6.10 - Agency Reporting Requirements and the Health Facilities and Emergency Medical Services Division Occurrence Reporting Manual. Each of the 14 Occurrence types are reviewed along with example reporting scenarios. We also discuss the reporting process so staff understand the important of timely and accurate reporting. 

This training satisfies 1 CLOCK HOUR towards the annual required training for Class A & B direct care staff. A completion certificate will be available for download upon completion of the course.
