There is mistreatment when

a a single or repeated act, or lack of appropriate action, occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust, which causes harm or distress to an older adult, whether the person deliberately wants to cause harm or not. (MF, 2017).

News

On July 16, 2020, INPEA is organising a webinar on the mistreatment of older adults in living and care facilities. In preparation for this webinar, we would like to invite you to complete the following survey. The goal of this short survey is to paint a summary portrait of issues related to the mistreatment of older adults in those facilities, throughout different countries and in the context of COVID-19.

Beyond this survey, INPEA would like to hear from you directly. If you are interested in giving a brief testimony on the current state of affairs in the living and care facilities of your country during the July 16 meeting, you are more than welcomed to contact Marie Beaulieu (marie.beaulieu@usherbrooke.ca).

Click on this link to access the survey.

Answers to the survey will only be accepted up until July 6th.

Thank you for your collaboration!
