326 - End the Silence: Workshop on Elder Mistreatment and Neglect, Providing Education every Healthcare Professional Should Know


Mar 1, 2014 4:00pm ‐ Mar 1, 2014 5:30pm

Standard: $24.00

Description

Session Description:
A million older adults living in the United States are victims of elder mistreatment annually; however, the exact prevalence of elder mistreatment and neglect in long-term care is unknown largely due to underreporting, which is often explained by lack of education of health care professionals on the subject matter, much variability in reporting policy among facilities, and lack of a uniform reporting process. This session will use an interactive workshop format to teach definitions, types, risk factors, signs and symptoms, and the general reporting process of elder mistreatment and neglect. Two audio documentaries featuring victims’ true stories and other real cases will be used to stimulate discussion. Participants will leave with resources to enable them to be more competent at diagnosis and reporting of elder abuse in long-term care.

Learning Objective(s):

  • Define elder abuse and list the types of elder abuse.
  • Identify common risk factors for elder abuse.
  • Describe the reporting process of elder abuse, identify themselves as mandatory reporters, and name the responsible reporting agency for elder abuse.
  • Explain how elder abuse commonly causes negative health outcomes for patients and that healthcare professionals have an important role in identifying and reporting elder abuse cases.
