Elder Abuse/Neglect

Tribal Elder Protection Team Toolkit

The National Indigenous Elder Justice Initiative has a Tribal Elder Protection Team Toolkit now available. “The Toolkit is designed to help you identify and implement a tribal elder protection team. The toolkit is made up of several sections. Each section contains information that concentrates on different aspects of developing a tribal elder protection team.” Obviously, since I’m posting it here, medical services are included in the team outline. You’ll find the following five sections:

You’ll also find some online education modules on their site, and while none of them are healthcare specific, I noted that healthcare is listed as one of the future topics, so continue to check back. Regardless, for those of you working with tribal communities, there is some solid, basic education available that is worth sharing with your team, particularly if they haven’t had much in the way of elder abuse education.


Our first offering in the FHO store, Injury Following Consensual Sex is now available. If you haven’t ordered a copy yet, you can find it here
