Recognizing and Responding to Adult Abuse

This course is designed for anyone who acts in a caregiving or service-providing capacity and is in contact with an adult (e.g., a meal provider, receptionist, health care assistant and physician), within any setting, to build awareness about recognizing, preventing and responding to the abuse of adults. This brief course covers key definitions and the different types of abuse, provides a scenario in a health care setting involving an adult with multiple vulnerabilities, advises how to respond to suspected abuse and obtain more information, and offers a certificate upon successful completion.
