Reaching Important Gatekeepers: Training Pharmacists About Elder Abuse

Source: UC Irvine / USC

Summary:

The role of pharmacists is critical in addressing elder abuse, yet they receive no training in this area. Geropharmacist educators from UC Irvine, USC and Glendale Adventist FPRP teamed up with the UC Irvine Center of Excellence on Elder Abuse and Neglect to develop course materials for pharmacy students. Students learn that pharmacists in any setting (in-patient, outpatient, ambulatory, and long-term care settings) may detect elder abuse. This project sheds light on the hidden but common problem of elder mistreatment. It helps students identify red flags of abuse and neglect and gives direction on how to proceed when mistreatment is suspected.
