PACE Introduces Elder Abuse Module
Posted in Updates on 6.22.2017
Alosa Health recently introduced an Elder Abuse/ Dementia module through Pennsylvania’s PACE program. This module focuses on caring for vulnerable elders by addressing elder abuse, managing dementia, and supporting caregivers. In keeping with our commitment to disseminating evidence-based information, this module contains guidelines on screening for both abuse and/or cognitive impairment as well as information on when it may or may not be appropriate to use cholinesterase inhibitors and other drugs in the treatment of dementia.
Academic detailers in Pennsylvania have already completed 250 visits to date, with feedback from providers describing the information they received as “relevant” and “very useful”.
