Elder abuse is often hidden and unrecognised. Whether in the home or in an aged care facility our older citizens are often highly vulnerable and dependent on others for their care. This course will increase your understanding of the dynamics of abuse and neglect, and assist you to respond appropriately.

This course is valuable for all those in the aged care or disability care sectors, including nurses, carers, therapists and volunteers.

The course covers:
• identifying and recognising elder abuse - types and definitions of abuse
• indicators of abuse
• dentifying and assessing risk factors
• best practice frameworks in client service delivery and complex situations
• legal and ethical frameworks for practice
• duty of care
• advocacy and empowerment.

After successfully completing this course you will receive a Statement of Attendance.
