The purpose of the descriptive study was to measure knowledge of current legislation, awareness of current protocols, identify the use of screening and intervention tools, and the ability to identify indicators of elder abuse in case managers in a community setting in Ontario, Canada. Jean Watson's Theory of Caring and Pender's (1996) Health Promotion Model Revised guided this study. Written questionnaires developed by the researcher were distributed to community case managers during their monthly team meeting. Subjects consisted of a convenience sample of 127 case managers. A total of 122 questionnaires were completed. Data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics. This study identified a lack of knowledge with current legislation and current protocols. Results showed that case managers are using elder abuse screening tools but are not using elder abuse intervention tools. A theme showed that case managers were able to identify indicators of elder abuse. Professional education and research in elder abuse is essential.
