1. Using AI to Predict Adult Maltreatment

This webinar will describe the purpose and results of the ACL funded research project to assess opportunities for using artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other “big data” tools to identify individuals who are at increased risk for abuse, neglect, and exploitation. In particular, the results of a literature review on risk and protective factors will be shared; a scan of how related fields (e.g., child welfare, healthcare, and criminal justice) use machine learning and predictive analytics; the methodology and results of the machine learning predictive analytic approach to identify locations with a high incidence of abuse, neglect, and exploitation. The webinar concludes with implications for research, policy, and practice to reflect on the long- and short-term future goals of early identification and prevention of adult maltreatment.

2. Fraud and Financial Abuse Prevention Networks: Showcasing Innovation

Elder justice advocates are calling for more effective, inclusive and innovative approaches to combating elder financial exploitation. This session will showcase new and revitalized resources created by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), including the Elder Fraud Prevention and Response Network Development Guide. The session will also highlight resources that can be used and customized by state, regional and community networks. These include outreach tools, training modules, and web content, much of which has been designed or updated to reflect special challenges posed by COVID-19. Panelist Micki Nozaki will show how Senior Medicare Patrol may adapt and co-brand CFPB materials, and Katie Carruesco, Education & Outreach Specialist, will describe California’s new Department of Financial Protection and Innovation. Lisa Nerenberg will describe the National Network of State Elder Justice Coalitions and facilitate a discussion on how states are mobilizing to address the needs of older consumers.

3. Elder Abuse and It’s Consequences: Findings from Waves I and II of the National Elder Mistreatment Study

This presentation will discuss, in broad strokes, findings from Wave I of the NEMS, which centered on answering the questions “how often” and “with what risk factors;” as well as findings from Wave II eight years later, which focused on the questions “what are the consequences” and “for whom.” Specifically, the prevalence of different types of elder mistreatment and risk factors for each type will be discussed in the context of outcomes of abuse and protective factors. This discussion should illustrate some steps communities and community based workers can take to both prevent elder abuse, and if elder abuse occurs, prevent or at least limit its negative consequences.

Date: Wednesday, February 3, 2021

Time: 2pm – 3pm EST.
