Sexual Violence in Later Life: Strategies for Health Care Providers
PRESENTED BY: Jennifer Pierce-Weeks, International Association of Forensic Nurses
Healthcare providers are in a unique position regarding effective identification and response to sexual violence in Later Life (National Center on Elder Abuse, 2012). The short- and long-term health implications for patients, in combination with increased mortality rates, make recognizing and effectively responding to sexual violence against older adults an important responsibility of all health care professionals. Collaboration with community-based sexual assault organizations and advocates is helpful in ensuring that health care professionals have the tools they need to identify and respond to sexual violence.
Forensic examiners, medical advocates, healthcare professionals and sexual assault advocates --This event is for anyone who works closely with adults in later life and would like to learn more about how sexual violence impacts the elder community. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. The content will be the same for each webinar and we are limiting the audience to 30 individuals, please feel free to sign up for either but not both.
