Mistreatment of Elderly People by Peter Decalmer

Book Description

A review of the First Edition...'Read it in medicine, nursing, social work and all health-care settings. It informs and illustrates by case examples, and the interface with the law, social work, nursing and general practice are usefully highlighted. It looks to the future' - The Lancet This completely revised and extended edition of The Mistreatment of Elderly People presents a comprehensive overview of research and theoretical explanations of elder abuse, as well as practical guidance for practitioners in the field. The new edition updates themes covered in the First Edition including: the clinical implications of abuse; sociological perspectives; issues for social workers, nurses, clinicians and general practitioners; legal implications; and prevention models. In addition, new research findings and further topics have been included. The new edition evaluates the implications of the NHS and Community Care Act, and the application of care management systems in cases of elder abuse. It also offers suggestions for good practice for interagency working and addresses questions of social policy, family and kinship networks, gender and the public response to the plight of vulnerable elderly people. The book looks at abuse in both domestic and residential settings and includes case examples of sexual, physical, psychological and material abuse and forms of neglect.
