2009 Promising Approaches for AddressingPreventing Abuse of Older Adults in First Nations "Through a literature review and web-based search, 8 regional teleconferences and an in-person focus group, this project was designed to identify relevant principles, screening and intervention tools and approaches and prevention strategies being used in First Nations communities to address/prevent abuse of older adults. While the project was focused on gathering approaches and tools to assist First Nations older adults who are abused, on or off reserve, as opposed to all aboriginal peoples (Inuit and Métis) frequently the term “aboriginal” is used because there has been so little research done with regard to First Nations older adults generally, or abuse of First Nations older adults more specifically. Including more references, approaches and tools that are at least aboriginal if not specifically First Nations, seemed desirable."
