Lisa Nerenberg, who has been involved in the field of elder abuse prevention since 1983, publishes a blog with posts concerning financial exploitation, identity theft, cognitive impairment and undue influence, care giving issues and cultural and gender issues. A recent post, “Geriatricians, Angry and Otherwise,” is a provocative commentary which highlights useful and interesting readings. The readings cover a wide range of topics, including, “the social and economic factors that contribute to elder abuse, including ageism in healthcare, inadequate pensions, and poverty,” and a surgeon’s description of the field of geriatrics. In addition, Nerenberg includes interesting references to global trends in elder abuse.
