Elder Abuse (first airdate 5/26/2008, 7:30 pm PST [4:30 pm EST]):
- This program details the forensic signs of elder abuse. Dr. Mosqueda's presentation is essential viewing by anyone who treats this vulnerable population. In this program, Dr. Mosqueda explains how to discern the normal signs of aging from signs of abuse.
- The lecture "Elder Abuse" addresses the lay public, describes the nature and scope of elder abuse, explaining some of the vulnerabilities to mistreatment and posing some ethical questions to ponder.
For those selecting an online mode to view the lectures, Elaine noted:
There is an advantage to watching on YouTube for people who prefer that the size of the screen can be enlarged to full screen for viewing archived programs, if one clicks on the little box on the lower right hand corner. This cannot be done from the UCTV website for watching the live streaming programs online.After their initial broadcasts, these two programs should join other archived lectures for online, on demand, video replay through the website of the Coming of Age Lecture Series.
2008 World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, the third such recognition on June 15th annually, as sponsored by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse, is designated for Sunday, June 15, 2008.
According to the U.S. Administration on Aging's webpage about "Elder Rights & Resources", that day "serves as a call-to-action for individuals, organizations and communities to raise awareness about elder abuse, neglect and exploitation."
