Elder Mistreatment Emergency Department Toolkit Training Program
Four e-learning modules developed by the National Collaboratory to Address Elder Mistreatment
Emergency department (ED) care providers are uniquely positioned to identify and respond to mistreatment among older adult patients. The Elder Mistreatment Emergency Department (EMED) Toolkit is designed to support ED professionals in fulfilling this important role. These interactive e-learning modules can be used by all staff to prepare to use the EMED Toolkit.
Elder Mistreatment Emergency Department Toolkit Feasibility Case Study Reports
The National Collaboratory to Address Elder Mistreatment implemented the Elder Mistreatment Emergency Department (EMED) Toolkit at 5 institutions. The reports spotlight how each hospital is using the EMED Toolkit to identify and address elder mistreatment. The authors describe how the hospitals previously addressed elder mistreatment, discuss the strategies they used to implement the toolkit, share key factors that affected their implementation of the toolkit, provide a detailed look at the results of using the toolkit, reflect on lessons learned, and discuss next steps.
