Journal of Peer Learning, v8 Article 5 p34-47 2015
There continues to be lack of public awareness about elder abuse. To help address this issue, we developed and piloted an elder abuse peer educator training program from an educational gerontology and health empowerment perspective. We describe the process employed to train older adults as peer educators. We present evaluation results from data collected from trained peer educators and those who attended educational sessions led by the trained peer educators. The results of the evaluation are useful in the continued development of our peer educator program and in identifying topics for further research.
