The book entitled Bientraitance et qualité de vie - Tome 2 : Outils et retours d’expériences is a collective work coordinated by Michel Schmitt and published in March 2015 by Les Éditions Elsevier Masson. This book follows in the footsteps of the previous volume: Bientraitance et qualité de vie - Tome 1 : Prévenir les maltraitances pour des soins et une relation d'aide humanistes (Well-treatment and quality of life - Volume 1: Preventing mistreatment for humanistic health care and caregiving relationships).

Various expert collaborators who contributed to this book continue to reflect on well-treatment, based on five major themes: Testimonials, experiences and perceptions; Tools; Well-treatment and supporting seniors; Well-treatment, end of life and death; Feedbacks; when the body becomes transparent and the soul opaque. Each is treated by various expert collaborators.

The Chair (Marie Beaulieu and Marie-Ève Bédard), in collaboration with Pierre Blain of the Regroupement provincial des comités des usagers (provincial coalition of users’ committees), has also drafted in this second volume a chapter entitled La lutte contre la maltraitance envers les personnes aînées au Québec. Bilan et prospectives sous une approche de défense des droits (Countering mistreatment of older adults in Quebec. Current situation and prospects under a rights-based approach).

The book is available at various bookstores.

Enjoy the reading!
