DMEA: Defining and Measuring Elder Abuse

DMEA: Defining and Measuring Elder Abuse
Preview Tool (PDF)

Broad Conceptual Definition:

The following is the updated/revised version of the broad conceptual definition of mistreatment that was developed by participants in the Defining and Measuring Elder Abuse (DMEA) Definition Consensus workshop:

“Mistreatment of older adults refers to actions/behaviours or lack of actions/behaviours that cause harm or risk of harm within a trust relationship.”

«La maltraitance envers les personnes aînées fait référence aux actes ou comportements, ou à l’absence d’actes ou de comportements, à l’intérieur d’une relation basée sur la confiance, causant du tort ou un risque de tort.»
