What is

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

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.
