Adult Protective Services Workforce Innovations (APSWI) recently launched a new eLearning: SOC 242 and You: What You Need to Know which will support APS investigators throughout California to accurately align the data they collect in daily practice with the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) SOC 242 monthly report.
The SOC 242 is the data collection tool used by the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) to collect data about Adult Protective Services across the state of California. The SOC 242 was revised in 2019 to include more demographic information about the clients we serve, the suspected abusers, and who is making reports to APS. This course, The SOC and You: What You Need to Know, will increase your knowledge of the SOC 242, the purpose behind the report, and how to accurately report data so that informed decisions can be made at a state and federal level. (1.5 CEs)
During the pilot phase of development, one APS Administrator shared, “I gained much-needed knowledge about the SOC 242 and how we all, from the front line to management, can contribute to gathering much-needed data about older and dependent adult abuse in California. This should be part of the core competencies eLearning curricula“.
APSWI is excited to assist California’s Adult Protective Services programs in their efforts to have consistent data and the release of this eLearning is a helpful tool in that effort.
