Then, on May 14 and 19, Marie Beaulieu gave two conferences in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region, the first one in Rivière-du-Loup on the 14th and in Rimouski on the 19th. The first conference was carried out in the framework of the annual symposium of the Réseau des soins palliatifs du Québec (Quebec Network of Palliative Care) and was on countering mistreatment and ensuring end-of-life good treatment (Free translation of the French word Bientraitance).It was therefore intended to health professionals and social services audiences. The second conference was in response to an invitation from the Table de concertation des aînés du Bas-Saint-Laurent (Senior Steering Committee for the Bas-St-Laurent region) and focused on the links between mistreatment and older adult bullying. Marie Beaulieu has also given another conference on the same topic on June 3 in Granby, following the invitation of the Association québécoise de défense des droits des personnes retraitées et préretraitées (AQDR) (Association advocating rights for retirees and pre-retirees).

Finally, on May 21, Jessica Calvé, with Constable Nathalie Lavoie and community worker Yvon Cléroux, gave a conference in Laval in the framework of the Séminaire Intersection (Seminar intended to community relations officers). This conference was part of the knowledge transfer resulting from the Arrimage project and was entitled Arrimage, a Three-Year Research-Action in the North-East of Montreal. An Intersystem Work Model to Counter Elder Abuse: Practice in Intersectoral Duo Police/Practitioner – Practical Guide.
