  1. Elder abuse.

    Article - En anglais

    Elder abuse takes many forms and occurs in a variety of settings ; it is both under-recognised and under-reported.

    Despite a lack of statutory guidelines or legislation, effective management is possible.

    More could be done to recognise abuse, and healthcare workers need to be vigilant, paying attention to both the circumstances in which abuse occurs and its warning signs.
