dc.description.abstract This brief focuses on mandated reporting of abuse of older adults and adults with disabilities to Adult Protective Services (APS). While most APS programs consider mandated reporting an essential tool for addressing harm to older adults and adults with disabilities, this brief will explore the strengths of mandated reporting as well as the criticisms and questions raised by other professionals. This brief will: Define mandated reporting and provide up to date information about who is required to report. Delve into the policy questions that arise from mandated reporting, including the pros and cons of requiring professionals and others to report. Two experts will weigh in with their divergent opinions on the topic. Review the available research and present the most pressing research questions.
