The Policy Framework to Counter Mistreatment of Older Adults in Institutional and Long-Term Care Settings to which the Chair contributed is now available. (August 3, 2016)

Themes: Public Policies

This document is intended as a tool for managers of the integrated centres of health and social services (CISSS) and the CIUSSS, their counterparts with a university mission. It may serve as an inspiration for the establishment of policies and procedures to prevent, detect and intervene in situations of mistreatment of older adults that could occur within their nursing homes and long-term care institutions. This policy framework provides avenues for action to enhance management practices and address explicitly various issues related to mistreatment in this context.

The Policy Framework to Counter Mistreatment of Older Adults in Institutional and Long-Term Care Settings (In French only) is available for free on the Centre for Research and Expertise in Social Gerontology website.
