dc.description Research Brief en_US
dc.description.abstract In 2017, the Texas Elder Abuse and Mistreatment Institute launched a statewide elder mistreatment assessment program ( which utilizes technology in the forms of a web-based communication portal and video-phone conferencing to allow every APS caseworker and their clients access to geriatric, psychiatric and elder mistreatment experts located in Houston Texas. This program is called the TEAM-Forensic Assessment Center Network (TEAM-FACN). It is a partnership between Texas APS and The University of Texas Health Science Center at Hou-ston, McGovern Medical School...the first year of implementation the number of cases worked by the Houston-based team increased 5-fold growing from a historical average of 100 per year to over 500. Within the first 3-months all APS districts across the state had utilized the TEAM-FACN services. Each client received an average of 2 services from the TEAM-FACN physicians resulting in over 1000 services provided to APS and their clients from geriatric and elder mistreatment experts to facilitate protective service planning. The efforts of TEAM-FACN have been able to bring expertise, access and efficiency to the entire state by leaving no caseworker or their client without access to much needed assessments. Some of these have resulted in substantial justice for the victims while others have resulted in enhanced protective service planning and implementation.
