Elder abuse: invisible scars

Registered NurseEnrolled Nurse


Elder abuse, ‘the silent epidemic’, is a serious public health issue worldwide.

It happens in private homes, hospitals and in nursing homes, and is seldom reported. Health professionals and others working in these contexts receive little, if any, education on the topic.

This session will empower nurses to understand the latest facts, recognise elder abuse, know how best to respond, and know how to help prevent elder abuse. ‘Real life’ case studies will be discussed.

This course is suitable for registered nurses and enrolled nurses.

Please note: This course is currently scheduled to be delivered face to face at ANMF Victorian Branch, 535 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne.  Face to face delivery is subject to change dependent on the COVID-safe conditions and restrictions in place on the course delivery date. 

Member $200, Non-member $280, Job Rep $190
