Nursing Response to Elder Mistreatment Curriculum
Free Training Curriculum for Educators

IAFN now has a curriculum on the nursing response to elder mistreatment for the public and includes 12 Modules with Instructor Materials,

Participant Materials and PowerPoint presentations
Additional resources and appendices are also available online. This is a free download. Please go to IAFN Curriculum Link

About the Curriculum
The goal of this course is to help nurses acquire essential knowledge and skills to appropriately respond to elder mistreatment. This course prepares nurses to integrate nursing and forensic sciences into the care of vulnerable older adults who have been mistreated or are at high risk for mistreatment by trusted others.

Why this Curriculum?
Nurses routinely care for older adults in a variety of settings. As the aging population in America rapidly increases, nurses are not only interacting with a greater number of older adults, but there also is an increased likelihood of encountering individuals who are dependent on others for help with activities of daily living (such as bathing, dressing and toileting) and instrumental activities of daily living (such as shopping, managing finances and using the telephone). Dependence on “trusted others” for basic care needs increases the risk of elder mistreatment.

No national, formalized curriculum exists that provides nurses with foundational knowledge about elder mistreatment and helps them develop skills to improve their capacity to respond to this problem. There are also no national-level education programs to build nurses’ basic forensic skills to enhance screening, assessment, intervention and referral in cases of actual or potential elder mistreatment. IAFN seeks to change this.

This formalized curriculum, created by the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN), with funding from the Office for Victims of Crime, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice, provides nurses the opportunity to improve their responses in elder mistreatment cases.
