TORRES PRADOS, M.ª Teresa  y  ESTRELLA GONZALEZ, Isabel M.ª. Awareness and detection of abuse in the elderly: towards primary care adapted to the elderly. Gerokomos [online]. 2015, vol.26, n.3, pp.79-83. ISSN 1134-928X.

The elder abuse has become a reality that increasingly health professionals are faced with greater frequency. This fact creates the need for health professionals work in a multidisciplinary team and based on a care as close as possible to the humanization of care; possess the necessary skills required by this health claim with the objective of ensuring the well-being and quality of life of our elders. Primary care professionals have a unique opportunity to identify and report abuse to elderly people, therefore it is necessary to train them to help detect, assess and intervene1. Currently there are no valid, sufficiently sensitive and specific instruments for the detection of child abuse in the elderly1. After reviewing the different used references we have aimed at the elaboration of a “Questionnaire to help professional nursing for early detection of abuse in older people” (table 1).
