Research on risk factors provides a magnifying glass for skillfully detecting people and situations at high risk for abuse. They aid in early detection and intervention to protect against the occurrence and recurrence of elder abuse. Part One (22 min) When we talk about “risk factors of elder abuse”, what do we mean? Why is it important to understand risk factors? What are the key research findings on risk factors, and which are most predictive of abuse? Part Two (16 min) What key points should workers in the field keep in mind about elder abuse risk factors and protective factors? Looking ahead, which areas related to risk factors most urgently need to be studied next? What are some policy implications of what we know about elder abuse risk factors?
