End of the Arrimage project on practices countering elder abuse (police-practitioner duo) on March 31, 2015

After a three-year term, the project ended on March 31, 2015.

In the first year of the project, Arrimage has first allowed to clearly identify individual and intersystem practices of organizations involved in the project, main intersystem workplaces (namely round tables) and an innovative practice, including the duo formed by a SPVM police officer and a psychosocial counsellor from the health and social services network or from a community organization. For the second and third year, case studies were conducted in the three CSSS territories in the north-east of Montreal (Lucille-Teasdale, Coeur de l’Île and Ahuntsic-Montréal Nord). Practices in duo were documented through observations, interviews and participation in three round tables. On the whole, these results were then analyzed.

As a result, three documents were published at the end of March 2015: an interdisciplinary literature review on intersystem work, research report on the intersystem duo practice model to counter elder abuse and finally, a practical guide for intersystem practice duo from the public or community network of the Health and Social Services sector (all three are available in french only).
