The NCEA is pleased to release our newest Elder Abuse Research Review.

This Research Review lists the latest primary and secondary literature related to elder abuse in the United States that was published during the NCEA Grant Cycle at USC (September 2014 - August 2017). While more research is needed to shed light on the prevalence, risk prevention, and detection of elder abuse, the NCEA is dedicated to disseminating peer-reviewed research as it is published to highlight what is known and identify gaps to inform policy and practice in the field.

We hope you find this resource useful and encourage you to share it with others in your network!
