With hundreds of continuing education courses available, we have decided to start highlighting a different course each week to give you a small glimpse at the types of things you can expect to learn when you complete your continuing ed at ProCECredit.com.
This week’s featured course: Elder Abuse and Neglect
This course is good for 2 contact hours and has a target audience of nurses, healthcare professionals, and interested individuals.
By the end of the course, you should have an understanding of the causes and types of elder abuse. You should also know the professional responsibilities that come with reporting, documenting, and intervening in cases of suspected abuse. Finally, you should know some action steps you can take to prevent elder abuse.
