2. A Research Agenda for the Adult Protective Service Fields

The Administration for Community Living (ACL) facilitated the development of the first research agenda focused exclusively on adult protective services (APS). The research agenda consists of 61 high-priority research questions and is intended to provide guidance to researchers, APS programs, and funders to highlight research gaps to help inform the APS field; and to help build the evidence for APS practices and procedures. In addition, it is the hope that the research agenda encourages researchers to partner with APS programs to answer these important questions. Partnerships between researchers and APS programs are essential to ensure that research is relevant and useful to practitioners and sensitive to the complexities of APS work and the rights of clients. This webinar will provide an overview of how the research agenda was developed and key questions identified by the field.

Presenters:

• Mary Twomey, Consultant in Elder Justice Issues
• Anne Leopold, Senior Project Manager for the Research and Evaluation Team at New Editions Consulting , Inc.

Date: Tuesday, December 8th, 2020
