We hope you found the discussion interesting and useful.
View the slides as a PDF.
This webinar discussed the widespread problem of physical violence (resident-to-resident mistreatment) in nursing homes and presenters suggested a large-scale public health initiative to end nursing home violence.
Dr. Karl Pillemer, Director, Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research, Hazel E. Reed Professor in the Department of Human Development, Professor of Gerontology in Medicine at the Weill Cornell Medical College, reviewed the research evidence on the prevalence of violence in nursing homes and discussed why intervention in this area has lagged other forms of violence. Options for eliminating violence in nursing home settings, with special attention to transferring knowledge from successful public health campaigns to combat violent behavior, were presented.
Also, Sara Gusler, Michigan Ombudsman program representative, described the "Senior-to-Senior Bullying Reduction" training program her agency developed.
Attendees also viewed available NORC resources regarding resident-to-resident mistreatment such as the LTCOP Reference Guide - Resident-to-Resident Mistreatment: Long-Term Care Ombudsman Advocacy.
Additional information about resident-to-resident mistreatment is available on the NORC website and archived webinars are located here.
Thanks again for joining us, we hope to see you at future webinars.
