We're only 1 WEEK away from #WEAAD !

This week's theme is "developing innovations, creating solutions," and we are pleased to highlight the very innovative Elder Abuse Training and Treatment Program at the Medical University of South Carolina, located in Charleston, South Carolina (MUSC College of Nursing, Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC).

Since January 2017, the Elder Abuse Training and Treatment Program has trained close to 500 healthcare professionals and graduate students pursuing degrees in healthcare on how to identify, report, and prevent #elderabuse.

In addition, the program recently has been awarded by the Office for Victims of Crime to provide psychological treatment to older people who have experienced elder abuse through telehealth based counseling. This novel approach provides treatment to community-residing older people who otherwise would not receive care, either because they live in a rural setting, because of stigma associated with abuse and mental health needs, or most likely, a combination of these factors.
People can communicate to trained counselors in the comfort of their own home, or at a shared space such as park, senior center, or library.

Both the trainings and treatment are free services that offered to the community.

For #WEAAD, the Program is offering a variety of trainings, prevention talks, and outreach activities scheduled all throughout the month of June.
