Preventing and Reporting Resident Abuse in Assisted Living: A Learning Module for Resident Assistants.
McKinnon, Cole Marie
In an effort to conform to the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) staff development requirement regarding elder abuse, a learning module was developed. It was designed to be administered to an individual caregiver for the purpose of self-study or to small groups of caregivers using the lecture-discussion format. Following the seven-page report is the learning module for resident assistants, entitled Preventing and Reporting Resident Abuse. Introductory materials include a list of learning objectives; introduction; and research on prevalence of elder abuse. Informative material is provided on types of resident abuse, such as physical abuse, psychological or emotional abuse, neglect, self-neglect, and financial exploitation or misuse; causes of resident abuse; and things one can do about abuse. Appendixes include a 14-item bibliography, list of 11 web sites and materials available online; post-test; and sample resident abuse investigation report form. (YLB)
