GUIMARAES, Ana Paula dos Santos; GORIOS, Carlos; RODRIGUES, Cintia Leci  e  ARMOND, Jane de Eston. Notification of intrafamily violence against elderly women in the city of São Paulo. Rev. bras. geriatr. gerontol. [online]. 2018, vol.21, n.1, pp.88-94. ISSN 1981-2256.


the aim of the present study was to characterize the population of elderly women who have suffered sexual and physical violence and describe the characteristics of this aggression.


a cross-sectional study was carried out using secondary data from the Violence and Accident Surveillance Information System, which registers reports of physical and sexual violence against the female population aged 60 and older.


in 2013 289 acts of physical violence against elderly women in the city of São Paulo were recorded, and sexual violence was reported in ten cases.


physical and sexual violence occurred mainly in the family environment, with the majority of aggressors male and a family member or known to the victim. In their direct and daily dealings with elderly health service users at all levels of complexity, doctors should know how to investigate and identify cases of violence, properly approach patients, act in coordination with other professionals and apply interventions that are effective for each case.
