"Despite all the debate about health care, Americans tend to assume they are in the best of hands when they enter the hospital. This is inaccurate : American health care is in the bottom half of all industrialized countries. This is only the largest in a broad set of misperceptions. We appropriately worry about the security of technology, but fail to see how its absence kills hundreds of people every day from medical errors. We over-value the impact of intervention on saving lives and ignore the 200,000 people who die each year unnecessarily from diseases they did not have to get. We worry that end of life discussions and palliative care will lead to "death squads," when research proves that people actually live not only better, but also longer. We demand modern information technology from our banks, airlines, retailers and hotels, but we passively accept last century's technology in our health care. It's not just patients who get things wrong. Physicians perceive that the dollars they take from drug companies don't alter their prescribing habits, but the data demonstrates that for every dollar the pharmaceutical world spends on doctors, they get $10 in return. Academic researchers deny that their results are influenced by which company funds the work, but in 95% of the cases, the outcome supports the funding source. Dr. Robert Pearl has seen these mistakes from all sides: as a concerned citizen, a patient, a health industry leader, and most importantly, a victim of bureaucracy, whose own father died due in part to medical error. In this book, Pearl explains why misperception is so common in medicine, both for patients and physicians. Solving the challenges of health care today including excessive costs, poor quality and the lack of convenience will require an understanding of this phenomenon, and an approach that aligns health care delivery with up to date information and data. It emphasizes the power of context, and how through integration, prepayment, information technology and physician leadership, superior outcomes can be achieve. It draws on other industries and companies like Amazon and Uber that were able to overcome customer fear, and shift perception, and provides a roadmap for the future"--

Since the late 1970s when Congressman Claude Pepper held widely publicized hearings on the mistreatment of the elderly, policy makers and practitioners have sought ways to protect older Americans from physical, psychological, and financial abuse. Yet, during the last 20 years fewer than 50 articles have addressed the shameful problem that abusersâ€"and sometimes the abused themselvesâ€"want to conceal. Elder Mistreatment in an Aging America takes a giant step toward broadening our understanding of the mistreatment of the elderly and recommends specific research and funding strategies that can be used to deepen it. The book includes a discussion of the conceptual, methodological, and logistical issues needed to create a solid research base as well as the ethical concerns that must be considered when working with older subjects. It also looks at problems in determination of a report's reliability and the role of physicians, EMTs, and others who are among the first to recognize situations of mistreatment. Elder Mistreatment in an Aging America will be of interest to anyone concerned about the elderly and ways to intervene when abuse is suspected, including family members, caregivers, and advocates for the elderly. It will also be of interest to researchers, research sponsors, and policy makers who need to know how to advance our knowledge of this problem.

In this guidebook, authors from various disciplines distinguish conflicts in ethical issues among elder abuse victims, precipitators, and professional care providers and propose ways to address these differences. Elder Mistreatment: Ethical Issues, Dilemmas, and Decisions identifies key differences and similarities in professional ethical protocols and shows how differences may be addressed to achieve consensus in ethical decisionmaking. For some time now, helping professionals involved with cases of elder abuse have recognized the need to begin a dialogue on applying ethical principles to practice. The subject of ethics, while always a part of services, has been difficult to articulate in practice because its roots come from principles of belief rather than objective, absolute criteria. For this reason, professionals have erred on the side of practice methods rather than the deeper issues of values protocols for clients and professionals. Elder Mistreatment raises the question of how to identify ethical values and their starting points among all parties in the elder abuse situation, determine whether dilemmas may arise with competing values, and initiate moves toward consensus. Professionals from the fields of medicine, social work, law, religion, and ethics review three cases of mistreatment, identify the ethical values, issues, and dilemmas as they relate to both the client/patient and their particular profession. In this way, the reader can compare the similarities and differences among professional starting points. The final chapter in this book, written by a medical ethicist, describes how members from different professions working as a multidisciplinary team might be able to integrate differing perceptions of the dilemmas into greater consensus in the process of ethical decisionmaking in cases of elder mistreatment. Throughout the case studies and chapters, these topics are covered in depth: communicative ethics autonomy beneficence non-maleficence justice community-based multidisciplinary care legal competence clinical competence Readers at all levels in the following fields will benefit from this guidebook: social workers, physicians, nurses, allied health professionals, psychologists, therapists, psychiatrists, clergy, lawyers, paralegals, and ethicists.
