Elder and Dependent Adult Multidisciplinary Team (MDT)

What is the Multidisciplinary Team?

The Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) is a select group of professionals throughout the community who work with Elder and/or Dependent Adults.

The Welfare and Institutions Code Section 15763, requires each county to establish and maintain an adult MDT. To meet this goal, Sonoma County Adult Protective Services has facilitated the MDT meeting since 1999.

What does the MDT do?

Professionals from the community present complex cases in confidential meetings and team members provide constructive feedback and identify strategies to reduce risk to these vulnerable adults.

In the process, resources and information about the community services are shared in the group.
