Host: National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA)
Person-centered care has been defined in geriatric medicine as care where “individuals’ values and preferences are elicited and once expressed, guide all aspects of their health care, supporting their realistic health and life goals.” This approach has potential for improving outcomes for elder abuse victims, but adaptation to elder abuse interventions is in its infancy.
This webinar from the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) will be a discussion on person-centered approaches used with victims of elder abuse, among professionals from programs that assist victims by understanding what is important to them.
