Abstract

Knowledge about EM is often likened to the "tip of the iceberg." Our study contributes to "mapping the EM iceberg"; however, findings based on diagnostic codes are limited and should not be used to minimize the problem of EM. With the so-called graying of America, training is needed in recognizing EM along with research to improve our nation's response to the mistreatment of our elderly population.
