Resident-to-Resident Aggression in Long-Term Care

Resident-to-Resident Aggression in Long-Term Care

 April 20, 2022 


Over the past 10 years, researchers at Cornell University have conducted studies of conflict and aggression among residents in nursing homes and assisted living communities. These studies established the first prevalence rates for resident-to-resident aggression (RRA) and identified residents at high risk of involvement in altercations with other residents. Based on this research, the first evidence-based intervention program for this problem was developed and tested: The Improving Resident Relationships in Long-Term Care (IRRL) program. This webinar will include an overview of RRA, including the extent, correlates, and contexts in which it occurs.

By the end of the webinar, participants should be able to: 

  • Describe the prevalence and dynamics of RRA.
  • Discuss a successful intervention program for preventing and treating RRA incidents.
  • Obtain practical guidance on implementing the RRA reduction program.
