Mistreatment of Older Adults

The team of the Research Chair on Mistreatment of Older Adults (in French) develops theoretical knowledge and practices designed to prevent mistreatment and the related issue of bullying, specifically through practice guidelines. Continuing previous work, the team of the Chair focuses on evaluating prevention, detection, and direct intervention practices as well as suggesting benchmarks to ensure a valid assessment that accurately reflects the experience of mistreatment across different cultures.

The work related to mistreatment of older adults is directly recorded as the second key environmental risk identified by the WHO in the World Report on Ageing and Health.

Chairholder: Marie Beaulieu (in French)
