Training in responding to suspected elder abuse

In response to the findings of the Royal Commission into Family Violence, the Victorian Government implemented an integrated model of care for responding to suspected elder abuse (IMOC). It was trialled at:

  • Latrobe Community Health Service
  • Melbourne Health
  • Monash Health
  • Peninsula Health
  • Western Health.

One of the key funded components of the model is the provision of professional education for staff and partners of the five health services on how to respond to suspected elder abuse. The training is now widely offered to all health services including regions where elder abuse prevention networks (EAPNs) have been established.
