This fall, the Research Chair begins data collection for the project entitled: Trajectoires de services locaux intersectorielles en matière de lutte contre la maltraitance envers les personnes aînées (September 2021)

In 2019, in partnership with the Grand Rassemblement des Aînés de Vaudreuil et Soulanges (G.R.A.V.E.S), the Research Chair obtained a grant from the Partnership Engage program of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada totaling $24,980.

The one-year project entitled The trajectories of local, intersectoral services in the fight against the mistreatment of older persons aims to map the trajectories of local, intersectoral services in the fight against the mistreatment of older adults. It will concurrently develop a methodological approach reproducible in diverse regions of Québec. Research activities will focus on four objectives:

  • Produce a summary of the internal practices of the two (2) local networks in the C.I.S.S.S.M.O. (Integrated Health and Social Services Center of Montérégie-West) region engaged in countering mistreatment.
  • Produce a step-by-step assessment of the intersectoral practices to counter mistreatment of the members of these two networks.
  • Map the two trajectories of local intersectoral services combatting mistreatment.
  • Produce a guide presenting the approach in establishing the trajectories of local, intersectoral services to enrich the practices in countering mistreatment.
