The workgroup conducted two half-day meetings, which resulted in recommendations that require legislative action for statutory changes. The members of the workgroup believe the recommendations will improve the consistency, accuracy, and effectiveness of Iowa’s mandatory reporter training, leading to better identification and reporting of suspected abuse of children and dependent adults. Members of the workgroup wish to thank the Iowa General Assembly, as well as the Governor, for creating the opportunity for this work to be done. Vulnerable children and dependent adults in Iowa depend upon the mandatory reporters of this state to help keep them safe and protect them from abuse.
