Elder Abuse/Neglect

National Indigenous Elder Justice Initiative Healthcare Training Module

Last year I posted about the toolkit published by the National Indigenous Elder Justice Initiative, and mentioned that they anticipated publishing a module for healthcare providers. I finally revisited their site, and the module is now live. It does a nice job of tackling a variety of issues related to recognition, the interplay of culture and understanding of abuse, and diagnosis and documentation, so if you’re looking for a place to start delving into this topic, it may be just what you’re looking for.
