Elder Abuse and Quality - Accountability in Aged Care Seminar is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Aug 15 - 16, 2019 at Lakes Resort Hotel, West Lakes, South Australia, Australia. CPD Hours: 11 Hours Overview: Elder abuse is a shocking event and it is not limited to institutional care. Early identification and action are essential. Attend this seminar and gain confidence in preventing and actively responding to this problem. Learn about: • What exactly is elder abuse? • Codes of ethics and conduct you must know • Who are the most at risk for abuse? • What are the warning signs? • How can you identify a victim who cannot speak up? • Why do people not tell others of their abuse? • Mandatory reporting imperatives • What is the role of the new Aged Care Quality and Safety Commissioner? Need for Program: Elder abuse is a major issue in our society. Every year in Australia, up to 10% of people over 65 years old are estimated to be victims of elder abuse. However, the tendency is to assume that elder abuse is as manifest as overt sexual abuse and blatant assault, but it is far broader than that. A lack of knowledge and understanding of elder abuse can lead to incidents that could be prevented. Therefore, it is critical that all nurses and other health providers are able to identify cases of elder abuse, understand why it happens, and what their professional obligations are in regards to intervention and reporting. Purpose of Program: The purpose of this seminar is to educate health and aged care providers on the prevention, detection, and appropriate intervention of elder abuse, including their accountability for mandatory reporting. Learning Outcomes • Use knowledge of the breadth and complexity of elder abuse to better assess and monitor older adults in your care • Be confident in your duty of care and understanding of legal requirements that apply in relation to elder abuse • Effectively respond to suspected elder abuse, including reporting and documentation.
