Weighing Evidence and Drawing Conclusions
Online via Zoom
November 7-8, 2023

This one and a half day course is limited in registration to those who have already attended the course, Conducting Serious Incident Investigations. The course provides information regarding how to perform one of the most difficult aspects of conducting an investigation: analyzing the evidence and reaching a conclusion.

The following issues will be addressed regarding how to determine what “really” happened in an analytical manner:
  • What does the phrase “burden of proof” mean? What are the appropriate standards in cases involving civil investigations of abuse and neglect?
  • How does the quality of the investigative process affect the ability of an agency to reach appropriate conclusions?
  • What factors assist an agency in reconciling differences among competing possibilities about what occurred and why it occurred in the context of a serious incident investigation?
  • What internal administrative processes will help organizations routinely arrive at valid investigatory conclusions?
