Elder Abuse: innovation, research, policy and practice

Elder abuse is gaining increased attention worldwide due to global population ageing. Prevalence studies in the UK and Canada found approximately 5% of people aged over 65 experience abuse in any one year. The World Health Organization estimates 10% of older people globally are victims of abuse.

Our annual seminar will showcase innovations in policy, practice and research across Australia and in the UK.
