Past Series: Adverse Interpersonal Relationships in Older Adults


Incidents of mistreatment, abuse, and neglect often go undetected by clinical and support staff despite estimates that 1 in 10 adults over age 60 have experienced some form of abuse.

Participants of this learning collaborative learned about elder abuse, the consequences of adverse interpersonal relationships in populations aging in place at home as well as in residential facilities, and perpetration of abuse by family members and domestic partners. 

Learning Objectives

  • Define elder abuse using federal and state definitions with special attention given to nuanced cultural and linguistic contexts
  • Learn to identify viable elder abuse screening approaches tailored for majority, racial and ethnic minority, as well as physically and cognitively impaired populations of older adults
  • Develop strategies for screening protocols, and leveraging state-specific support services to address consequences of adverse interpersonal relationships
