e-learning Abuse Prevention in Long Term Care (eAPL) Educational Modules

eAPL educational modules are now available online for free here: http://www.hccrn.com/resources/eapl_index.html

The overall goals of eAPL are to: (1) sensitize individuals to the issues found in abuse and neglect of older persons living in institutional settings; (2) generate discussion and reflection that can lead to further understanding of and commitment to finding solutions; and, (3) raise awareness of the need for a supportive and respectful environment and how to foster one. The focus throughout the 9 modules is on the older resident's perspective. eAPL can be used for either group-facilitated or self-directed learning.
