PSRACS needed for resource evaluation

March 25, 2021

The VHA has been working with the Department of Health and a sector reference group on a series of resources on recognising and responding to elder abuse in residential aged care.

We are looking for PSRACS to participate in evaluating the resources between Monday 19 April and Friday 21 May 2021.

The resources: Four 10-minute videos on recognising and responding to elder abuse, and accompanying facilitator notes. All scenarios and follow-up actions are specific to the residential aged care setting.

  • Video 1: Recognising elder abuse in residential aged care
  • Video 2: Having difficult conversations about suspected elder abuse
  • Video 3: Best practice responses to elder abuse in residential aged care
  • Video 4: Supporting staff who identify and respond to elder abuse

The evaluation requires staff who watch the videos and participate in follow-up discussions to complete a survey.

Directors or managers involved in running the sessions will complete a 15-20 minute telephone interview.

If you are interested, or would like further information, please contact Kerryn Garner or call 0449 508 393.
