The purpose of this course is to increase your awareness of the forms, signs and risk factors of abuse and neglect of older adults. It aims to encourage you to participate in the prevention of abuse and neglect and reflect on your own attitudes and behaviours when caring for older adults.
This module is designed to educate everyone involved in the delivery of care to older adults. It is based on the RNAO best practice guideline Preventing and Addressing Abuse and Neglect of Older Adults: Person-Centred, Collaborative, System-Wide Approaches.
The Knowledge Check is a quiz based on information covered in all four modules above.
It is recommended that you complete all four modules before attempting the quiz, as the modules contain valuable information, examples, resources and learning activities that nurses and other health-care providers need to know to better understand how to prevent and address abuse and neglect of older adults.
