Abstract: 

Although health care practitioners have a legal and ethical duty to identify and intervene in suspected cases of elder abuse and mistreatment, the existing lack of knowledge and perceived barriers to reporting often interferes with this duty. The goal of the elder abuse and mistreatment learning modules is to provide case-based training to health care professionals. The training consists of two presentation modules with embedded speaker notes. Module One: Identifying Elder Abuse, focuses on the descriptions, signs and symptoms of elder abuse and mistreatment. Module Two: Screening and Intervening, concentrates on screening for elder abuse and mistreatment and provides guidance for intervention. Combined, these modules provide a basic understanding of elder abuse and mistreatment to assist health care practitioners in identifying and reporting this prominent public health problem. 

Educational objectives: 

After reviewing these modules, participants will be able to:                      

  1. Describe three types of elder abuse.
  2. List five signs and symptoms that raise suspicion of elder abuse.
  3. Identify three factors for elder abuse and neglect.
  4. Determine the steps to screen for elder abuse.
  5. Describe three interventions for victims of elder abuse.
  6. Discuss three interventions for stressed caregivers.
  7. List common community resources available to elders and their families. 
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

Many of the slides within these presentations contain animations. It would be advisable to closely review slides prior to presenting to an audience. Embedded speaker notes are an additional feature of the presentations.

Product Information
Abstract: 

An OSCE examination was developed that evaluates assessment and evaluation of a geriatric patient suffering from urinary incontinence.  The OSCE allows for evaluation of communication and history taking skills as well as for a focused physical examination.   A voiding diary is reviewed with assessment of this diary completed.  A differential diagnosis must be given along with a detailed evaluation and treatment plan.  In addition, basic knowledge of bladder function and incontinence is assessed.

Educational objectives: 

 

1.      To evaluate the learner’s ability to effectively communicate with a geriatric patient and obtain a thorough history.

2.      To assess the learner’s ability to interpret a voiding diary.

3.      To assess the learner’s differential diagnosis regarding urinary incontinence.

4.      To evoke an effective and appropriate evaluation and treatment plan from the learner.
