Elder Mistreatment Emergency Department Toolkit
Interested in implementing this Toolkit?
Contact the National Collaboratory to Address Elder Mistreatment using the form at the bottom of the page.
Reach out via the form on this page, for no-cost access to a brief organizational readiness assessment tool, online versions of the tools, and consultation from our expert core faculty.
Elder mistreatment affects 1 in 10 older adults, but only 1 in 1000 older adults presenting in the emergency department are diagnosed with elder mistreatment. This toolkit contains resources that will address that imbalance by assessing staff knowledge and practice, training staff to use simple tools to screen older adults for elder mistreatment and respond to suspected cases, and forging connections with community partners.
