In response to the findings of the Royal Commission into Family Violence, the Victorian Government is implementing an integrated model of care for responding to suspected elder abuse, which is being trialled for 12 months at Latrobe Community Health Service, Melbourne Health, Monash Health, Peninsula Health, and Western Health.
The Bouverie Centre, in partnership with St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne and Seniors Rights Victoria, has been engaged to deliver one of the key funded components of the model - the provision of professional education for staff and partners of the five health services regarding how to respond to suspected elder abuse.
