Project: The Counterpoint Project
The Counterpoint Discussion Paper, Moving From Scrutiny to Strategy: An Analysis of Key Canadian Elder Abuse and Neglect Cases, reviews a number of recent elder abuse and neglect cases that have been recorded in Canadian court decisions – largely criminal cases. The cases serve as a backdrop for highlighting social dynamics at play in elder abuse cases, comparing relevant legislation across the country, clarifying legal obligations to respond to elder abuse under legislation and professional codes of ethics, and making recommendations for protocol and policy development, and professional development and training to support the practice of health care and social service workers in the area of elder abuse and neglect.
The discussion paper is available in PDF format.
