Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

The primary objective of the review is to assess the effectiveness of primary, secondary and tertiary intervention programmes utilised to reduce or prevent, or both, elderly abuse in organisational, institutional and community settings. We will also identify and report on adverse consequences or effects of the intervention/s in the review.

The secondary objective is to investigate whether intervention’s effects are modified by types of abuse, types of participants, setting of intervention or cognitive status of the elderly.
