Elder Abuse Prevention Project - Phase I. Literature Summary.
Draper, Lori; And Others
This document summarizes information on elder abuse collected from various sources in Canada and the United States. It is noted that document entries are often representative of more than one source, and have been selected as each adds something new and valuable to the overall research on elder abuse. An attempt has been made to choose information relevant to the Canadian situation and more specifically, to the prairies. It is further noted that some of the points of information seem contradictory, a fact that reflects differences in research methods and results. Readers are cautioned to consider the age and type of the study. Each entry in the summary is credited to the original author and includes the year published. To help readers locate publications cited in the summary, a list of elder abuse print and non-print materials held by the Seniors' Education Centre at the University of Regina (Saskatchewan, Canada) is included. Information is cited under these headings: The Problem; Definitions; Statistics and Predictors; Risk Factors; Profile of the Victim; Detection; The Abuser; Prevention; Intervention and Treatment; Legislation; and Research Problems.
