From the announcement:

Elder abuse is an increasing common problem. Elder abuse may include physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, as well as financial exploitation, neglect, abandonment, and self-neglect. Often the victim is in an ongoing relationship with the abuser such as an intimate partner, family member, or caregiver. This webinar aims to raise awareness about the issue of elder abuse and help participants recognize elder abuse and identify the most appropriate resources for referrals. The response to elder abuse requires a collaborative approach.

CMEs are available for physicians (sorry, nurses). You can register here.
