dc.description.abstract Center for Victim Research (CVR) is assessing the state of the field in victim response specific crime types and creating research syntheses. These webinar slides provide an overview of the syntheses on the research and practice evidence about elder abuse. This synthesis does not include self neglect or older adults victimized through fraud and identity theft (see CVR's Identity Theft and Fraud synthesis). The researcher presenters compare different national estimates on the prevalence of elder abuse and the measurement and definition challenges. The webinar also provides background on demographic, social, physical health, and mental health risk factors and protective factors like social support and the consequences of elder abuse for older adults and for society. Finally, the presentation discusses current prevention and interventions strategies and research about their effectiveness. The practitioner presenter discusses current efforts to raise awareness of elder abuse, coordinating Adult Protective Services, shelters for older adults , and important legislation related to stopping elder abuse. Finally the presenters suggest ways to improve national prevalence estimates and consistent definitions and recognizing older adults' diverse backgrounds and experiences of polyvictimization.
