MDT Project: Draft List of MDTs

Home | Grant Abstract | Expert Panel | Draft List of MDTs | Contact Us

Based on this project’s first survey, the research team has compiled the below list of elder abuse multidisciplinary teams (MDTs). There is still some duplication and error in the list (such as teams listed twice, or entities listed that are not actually MDTs), but these issues are currently being resolved.

For reference, we are defining an elder abuse MDT as a team that is comprised of professionals from a variety of disciplines working together on an ongoing basis to combat elder abuse.

Please review the list below and let us know if there are any teams missing, or if you can provide us with a contact person for a team where we are currently missing that information. We would prefer for you to let us know by taking our online survey, but you can choose to e-mail us instead at abuseMDT@usc.edu.

If you have any comments or questions about the process, you can e-mail abuseMDT@usc.edu.

Thank you for your input!
