The University Institute of Frontline in Healthcare and Social Services (free translation of Institut universitaire de première ligne en santé et services sociaux), in collaboration with Marie Beaulieu and the Government agency that helps increase the social participation of people with disabilities in Québec (free translation of Office des Personnes Handicapées du Québec), started the creation of a podcast summarizing the highlights of the research on psychological and material and financial mistreatment of people with disabilities directed by Marie Beaulieu and Hélène Carbonneau of the University of Québec in Trois-Rivières.
The podcast has the goal to make accessible the results of this research, the first in Québec to give a voice to older adults with disabilities that experienced mistreatment to understand their experience and highlight the services trajectories. Marie Beaulieu and Hélène Carbonneau narrate and excerpt the statements of older adults with disabilities who experienced mistreatment .
The podcast’s launch was on June 15 as part of the World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.
