Elder abuse has been increasing recognised over the past ten years in many countries and progress in working with the problem has been rapid. This volume provides a much-needed international overview of the topic Opening with an examination of what elder abuse is, Amanda Phelan sets it in a theoretical context and looks at assessment, approaches and management of the issue in long term and community care. The book then presents a range of country studies, which provide an overview of the context of elder abuse in the country and a discussion of related policy, legislation, research and practice. Countries covered include Ireland, United Kingdom, Spain, Sweden, Australia, Japan, Israel, Canada and the United States, whilst a regional chapter looks at Africa. A concluding chapter draws together cross-cultural comparisons and provides some guidance as to best practice. The only comprehensive book in this area, International Perspectives on Elder Abuseis an invaluable reference for academics and researchers from a range of disciplines, including nursing, social work, sociology, public health and social policy.
