Website highlights elder abuse information
In advance of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, June 15, MerckManuals.com is highlighting information on how to prevent, recognize and respond to elder abuse.
“While the entire content of The Merck Manuals is always available online, what we decide to call special attention to on the landing page is dynamic,” said Editor-in-Chief Robert S. Porter, M.D. “We often look to highlight topics based on national observances and issues that have broad implications for society and public health.”
There is no charge to access information on the site, which expands on the information contained in The Merck Manuals, a series of medical reference books to which medical experts contribute. Content is reviewed by an independent editorial board and is regularly updated.
