Elder abuse is a significant public health problem and everybody’s business. Many Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) work in close contact with older persons in various care settings. This puts Licensed Practical Nurses in a unique position to understand how abuse can be prevented and support those who have been abused or are experiencing abuse.
The Elder Abuse Self-Study Course was designed by the CLPNA as continuing education for LPNs who have an invested interest in recognizing, responding to and preventing instances of elder abuse/mistreatment. The main purpose of this course is to bring further awareness to the issue of elder abuse and strategies that can be used to support older persons where either abuse is suspected or a person has disclosed that they are being abused.
