This video covers the key points that all physicians need to be aware of, as any physician can spot the signs and help a patient suffering from abuse. Since very few physicians are trained in elder abuse, few will recognize the signs and have the appropriate tools to get help for the patient. This video discusses the signs as they may present in the course of a vision-care setting, how to address the problem, and what resources are available to those seeking to help their patients.
