Research Committee

The Research Committee cultivates research by mentoring elder justice researchers.
The Research Committee focuses on promoting and expanding statewide elder abuse research efforts. Research is vital to identifying tools and resources to detect and respond effectively to elder abuse.  Statewide research is needed that especially calls out for a coordinated, systematic approach that includes policy-makers, researchers and funders. The committee focuses on methods that highlight successful research and collaborations that have taken place statewide, brainstorm ideas for new research and foster collaborative efforts between working professionals. Researchers and practitioners need to work together in all phases of research, including identifying research questions, interpreting results, and disseminating information.
