Summary:

Elder Abuse Ontario has developed a series of ‘Training Modules’ on specific issues related to elder abuse. The Modules have been designed to provide a standardized format for training purposes that can be utilized for educating interdisciplinary sectors. Recognizing the diversity of training environments as well as time considerations, sections of the module can be used independently to teach on a specific subject area or used in its entirety. This module addresses elder abuse in the LGBTQ community such as systemic barriers and increased risk factors for LGBTQ older adults and how to support LGBTQ older adults.
