Caregiving Violence: Who are the victims and who are the perpetrators?

Learning objectives: 

  1. Identify risks, contexts and settings that influence violence in caregiving for those receiving and those providing care including the “special risks” related to living in rural settings.
  2. Describe care strategies and interventions that can reduce the risk for escalating caregiving violence
  3. Identify resources in rural settings that can reduce risks and promote healthy interactions between those receiving care and those providing care.
