Date Published
Annotation
This manual presents the issues and challenges that Elder Abuse-Fatality Review Teams (EA-FRT) will likely face in the course of their work and offers ideas for addressing them.
Abstract
Elder abuse fatality review teams review deaths caused by or related to elder abuse and can improve the response of community agencies to elder abuse victims. This publication, created with funding support from OVC, provides guidance to communities interested in establishing similar teams. This document was updated in June 2019 to include information on the criteria and selection of cases for review, confidentiality practices, preventing "blame and shame," and a comparison of 27 categories of professionals serving as team members. It is available electronically from American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging (www.americanbar.org/groups/law_aging/resources/elder_abuse/elder-abuse-fatality-review-team-projects-and-resources).
