The Evaluation of NICE Elder Abuse Tools

May 04, 10 – 11 pm PDT

Presented by Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and

National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE)

The National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE: www.nicenet.ca) is a knowledge transfer and exchange network dedicated to improving the care of older adults in Canada and abroad. One of the main approaches for knowledge transfer has been the development of ‘pocket’ tools that address the core challenges of aging. NICE has developed over 100 pocket tools in the areas of financial literacy, mental health, dementia care, end-of-life issues, caregiving, the law and aging, and elder abuse. However, there has been no formal evaluation to date on the impact of these tools.

To address this gap in knowledge, a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada funded pan-Canadian initiative is being undertaken by Dr. Lynn McDonald (principal investigator) to evaluate the impact of NICE’s pocket tools.

For this webinar, you will be provided with
1: An overview of the National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly;
2: a description of some of the available NICE elder abuse tools;
3: the goals and methods for evaluating NICE pocket tools;
4: preliminary findings on NICE pocket tool use across Canada, with a focus on the elder abuse tools.

 Who should attend:
Individuals and organizations across Canada involved in the protection and wellbeing of elders and in the prevention of elder abuse.
