Protecting Older People from Elder Abuse: Irish Human Rights & Quality Commission Act 2014
Systems and institutional behaviours end up posing barriers to the participation of older people and, to date, this has been a hidden phenomenon but it would appear to be deeply ingrained. It leads to outcomes that exclude older people.
The agenda for change that is contained in the recommendations of this act are based on a number of key principles. These include the need to give due regard to difference for older people, difference that is reflected in their particular situation, experience and identity.
This course will equip the participant with the skills and knowledge to understand and appreciate the current problems of ageism, the challenges of exclusion that older people face and the changes which this new legislation seeks to change.
Who should apply?
This course is designed for anyone with the responsibility of preparing for clinical inspections and audits. It is also very useful for any employees who wish to gain a better understanding of the process and beneficial importance of clinical audits and the role that they play in achieving successful audits.
