Abstract:

Abstract: The problem of elder abuse in the United States is expected to increase as the population gets older. When an older adult is abused, the consequences are immense. Nurse-Practitioners in regular contact with the elderly are in a position to detect abuse and to initiate proper investigation and intervention. The purpose of this project was to evaluate the attitudes and knowledge of student nurse-practitioners at California State University, Long Beach on the topic of elder abuse. Results of the study showed significant differences between the groups of first year and second year students on their evaluation of five statements pertaining to knowledge of issues surrounding elder abuse and one statement each on knowledge of protocols and laws and attitude towards elder abuse. There was 100% agreement among Nurse Practitioner students on their perceived legal responsibility in protecting older adults from elder abuse.
