Elder Mistreatment

Review of Programs to Combat Elder Mistreatment

The Journal of the American Geriatrics Society (JAGS) has published a paper, "Review of Programs to Combat Elder Mistreatment - Focus on Hospitals and Level of Resources Needed."

A literature review of 116 articles describing 115 elder mistreatment programs, including those that had not undergone evaluation, was undertaken.

Programs were categorized into 14 types and 9 subtypes and examined, including for their potential to be successfully implemented.

The objective was to conduct a more comprehensive examination of programs to improve elder mistreatment identification, intervention, or prevention.

The National Collaboratory to Address Elder Mistreatment Project team undertook the review.
