On May 7, as part of an official French mission to Quebec, Alice Casagrande presented a conference entitled Des militants face au silence. Naissance d’une politique publique de lutte contre la maltraitance des adultes vulnérables en France. Ms. Casagrande is director of training, innovation and community living at FEHAP, Vice-President of the Commission to Promote Wellness Care and Fight Against Mistreatment of Vulnerable Persons and Co-president of the Atelier « Métiers » de la concertation nationale Grand Âge et Autonomie.

Imbued with her passionate commitment, Ms. Casagrande’s conference was based on her first-hand on the ground experience with socio-medical institutions, her work developing enforceable national standards for this sector, and finally, her leadership working with the French government to fight against mistreatment of vulnerable adults. Conference participants could better understand the development and deployment of public policy to counter mistreatment.
