New Guide to Elder Abuse and Neglect Law in Canada

The British Columbia Law Institute has released A Practical Guide to Elder Abuse and Neglect Law in Canada:
"This comprehensive resource includes snapshots of the law in each of the thirteen provinces and territories, a comparative table that allows for quick reference, a set of guiding principles for working with vulnerable adults, and sections that discuss mandatory reporting of abuse and neglect, rules around confidentiality of personal and health information, and the relationship between mental capacity and elder abuse. The guide also contains a lengthy list of resource agencies."
