ELDER MISTREATMENT: Many physicians have encountered older patients they suspect may be mistreated, yet there is little guidance to help them in their care of these individuals. A set of nine policy recommendations have been adopted for better clinical care and increased education and research in the area of elder mistreatment. Among the recommendations is the development of curriculum at the residency level on how to recognize elder mistreatment, as well legislation that promotes clinical, research, and educational programs in the prevention, detection, treatment, and intervention of elder abuse.

"Elder mistreatment cuts across class, race, and gender lines and occurs in both urban and rural areas," said AMA Board Member Steven Stack, M.D. "Creating more guidance for physicians, residents and medical students on how to recognize elder mistreatment and what to do about it is a vital step in protecting our society's more vulnerable population."
