Mistreatment of Older Adults Intervention, In Hand : An Ethical Decision-Making Framework (English version of En Mains)
In Hand has been designed to support health and social service practitioners in their ethical reflection leading to decision-making during the intervention process in a mistreatment of older adult situation. This decision-making framework contains three scenarios: suspension of follow-up, support and formal protective interventions. In Hand targets various competing values arising in a mistreatment of older adult situation and introduces various suggestions for practice and facilitates the identification of psychosocial and ethical issues raised in practice situations.
