Family gatherings are more commonplace in December, and older adults without families can experience more acute social isolation. Since isolation is both a risk factor for and a consequence of elder abuse, we decided to ask you - our social media followers and colleagues - to commit to speaking with an older adult in December. Our hope was that, by sharing this campaign, we could support older adults and contribute towards the prevention of elder abuse during the 2017 holiday season. More →

The National Institute on the Prosecution of Elder Abuse
November 7-10, 2017
New Orleans, LA
The National Institute on the Prosecution of Elder Abuse (NIPEA) is a three-and-one-half-day course designed to challenge prosecutors to reevaluate their approach to prosecuting elder abuse cases. Participants receive training on the dynamics of elder abuse as well as practical skills to successfully prosecute these cases. NIPEA explores the complex issues faced by prosecutors — balancing offender accountability with the impact of criminal prosecution on victims. In addition to case evaluation and litigation skills, the curriculum examines the benefits of developing a coordinated, victim-centered community response; explains common injuries and relevant medical evidence, providing guidance on the use of medical experts; explores ethical issues confronted by prosecutors; addresses the development and improvement of culturally-specific victim services; and offers prosecutors the ability to redefine outcomes and the very nature of justice in elder abuse cases.
NIPEA will take place at the DoubleTree by Hilton in New Orleans, Louisiana. Fifty-four (54) slots are available, as are limited scholarships to help defray travel and hotel expenses. There is no tuition fee for the institute. Attendees may qualify for approximately twenty (20) continuing legal education credit hours including at least one (1) hour of ethics credit.
Preference will be given to prosecutor offices participating in the OVW Enhanced Training and Services to End Violence Against and Abuse of Women Later in Life Program (or prosecutor offices which are partnered with organizations that receive such funds). All other applicants/prosecutors will be considered in the order in which they apply.
Interested prosecutors may apply to attend NIPEA by completing the survey here. Submission of an application does not guarantee a spot in the Institute; please DO NOT make travel arrangements unless and until you have been notified that you are accepted for the course. If you need assistance completing this survey, please contact Nina Reynolds at 608-237-3454 or email@example.com. The deadline for applications is Friday, September 29.
Please contact Ann Laatsch at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this program.
This event is sponsored by The Office on Violence Against Women, the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life, and AEquitas – The Prosecutors’ Resource on Violence Against Women.
Webinar: Does Elder Abuse Type Tell Us Anything About 5-year All-Cause Mortality?
Tuesday, November 21, 2017
2:00-3:30 pm EST
It is widely recognized and accepted that confirmed elder mistreatment leads to higher risks of early all-cause mortality. Less understood is whether different types of confirmed elder mistreatment confer a greater risk for all-cause mortality compared to other confirmed types and whether having multiple types of concurrent confirmed elder mistreatment result in compounded risk for death. This webinar presents data from a single study using Texas Adult Protective Services data of confirmed elder mistreatment to predict 5-year all cause mortality among 5-different maltreatment types (i.e. caregiver neglect, physical abuse, emotional abuse, financial exploitation and polyvictimization). The findings will be discussed in relation to existing literature and the need for future well-designed mortality studies aimed at understanding the individual impact that different elder mistreatment types may have on mortality.
