"Worldwide, the majority of the older adult population is women and as this population grows the issue of violence against older women will also continue to increase.

Recognizing the growing prevalence of violence against older women and lack of a full complement of available resources, a series of video learning modules on strategies to address this issue was developed by Women’s College Research Institute, the Ontario Network of Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Treatment Centres, and Elder Abuse Ontario.

The video learning modules have been designed to benefit a variety of organizations and individuals connected to violence against older women including researchers, trainees, government-decision makers, frontline healthcare professionals, family members, and the public.

The video learning modules can be viewed either as a complete series or individually, based on the video learning objectives that are most applicable, with a certificate following completion of a very short post-module survey for each module.''

The modules are as follows:

  1. Competing Frameworks of Elder Abuse and Violence Against Women
  2. Activism and Advocacy for Bringing About Change for Abused Older Women
  3. Promising Practices for Responding to Older Women who have Experienced Violence
  4. Public Awareness and Community Mobilization to Address Domestic Violence in Older Women
  5. Building Partnerships Across the Violence Against Women and Elder Abuse Sectors
