dc.description.abstract The International Association for Indigenous Aging (IA2), with funding from The National Resource Center for Reaching Victims of Crime, sought to understand the current needs and experiences of tribal health care clinics in screening and managing elder abuseamong American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) older adults. This is the first and most comprehensive national needs assessments designed to identify facilitators and barriers for screening and management of elder abuse by tribal health care providers....The state of the science on elder abuse among AIAN people is similar to that of other minority and vulnerable groups; it is limited, progress has been slow, and solid comparable prevalence estimates are lacking (Jervis & Sconzert-Hall, 2017; Sapra et al., 2014). The available research demonstrates a potentially high prevalence of abuse of AIAN elders that occurs at the intersection of contextual factors that include inter-tribal cultural diversity, tribal sovereignty, complex tribal justice systems, historical trauma, acculturation, urban migration, and demographic and health disparities (Crowder, Burnett, Laughon, & Driesbach, 2019; Crowder et al., 2019)...The information obtained from this needs assessment is designed to fill a gap in practice and policy for tribal providers and perhaps lend useful insights for mainstream health providers. Project objectives include: Describe provider, community, cultural, and systematic (clinic-level) factors that contribute to how victims of elder abuse are identified and managed in outpatient clinical settings; Identify facilitators and barriers to recognition and management of elder abuse; Explore the context of providing clinical care for abused elders; Identify phenomena related to care of elders unique to AIAN cultures; and Identify existing promising practices for screening and management of elder abuse among tribal health providers. To address the project objectives, a multi-phased mixed methods iterative design was employed, that incorporated qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis across two data sets, including telephone interviews (n = 23) and an online survey (n=90) with participants from 22 states.
