This inter-professional project started with, occupational therapists who felt they needed more information on their responsibilities in such instances and on potential strategies for intervention and came to the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT), their national professional association for advice.Building on the Strategies for occupational therapists to address elder abuse/mistreatment, this project aims to develop a curriculum for health care providers to learn about indicators of elder abuse, prevention, assessment and intervention protocols, relevant legislation and available resources. The curriculum will be delivered in face- face workshops (with teleconference/video link option for those remote) in various regions across Canada. The expected outcome of the training workshops is to have participants knowledgeable and skilled to deliver interdisciplinary educational sessions in their regions. CAOT is proud to be a leader in building capacity for managing situations of elder abuse and to share this information with other health care professionals across Canada."
