Course Description

The Canadian Dental Hygienists Association is pleased to introduce "Facing Abuse of Older Adults" as an addition to its collection of online professional development courses. The primary objective of this course is to increase the number of dental hygienists across the country who are knowledgeable in detecting, and confident in advocating against elder abuse and neglect.

Successful completion of this course will provide an enhanced understanding of the factors that are seen to explain abuse and neglect of older persons and why the problem persists in our society. The course will present a background of the causal dynamics found in families and institutions and explore the effects of discrimination and diversity, ethno cultural aspects and aboriginal concepts. This information will add to your self-confidence in recognizing and acting on possible situations of abuse or neglect of older clients.

Complimentary to this course is a three part webinar series.
