Elder Abuse in Europe

21-06-2010

The objective to develop a reference framework of Good Practices to prevent elder abuse.

Reference Framework

The European Reference Framework Online for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and Neglect Project (EuROPEAN) aims to give a deeper insight on the context of elder abuse on an European level.
It will help to understand why certain prevention measures are effective
or needed and why certain factors are taken into account in the development of the Reference Framework.
This report, the Reference Framework and other findings of the project will provide a new step in the creation of a body of work that is required to better understand and tackle elder abuse both on a national and an international level. A topic of specific interest in this project will be legislative and policy measures, besides the more broadly investigated topic of abuse in formal and informal care settings. It is important that we continue to work together towards the building of a social and legal structure that minimizes the risks of older people becoming victims of abuse The information in this Background and Position paper was gathered on the basis of a questionnaire, that was developed by MOVISIE and spread among relevant stakeholders through organizations in the project consortium and the website www.preventelderabuse.eu.
