Elder Abuse Webinar Series: Innovative Research Partnerships
     

Building a Risk Assessment Tool for the N.H. Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services

January 31, 2012 | 2 pm to 4 pm EST

~ This is an online Webinar and is offered free of charge. Registration is required. ~

This Webinar will examine the complex issue of researching an elderly population, and how a truly innovative partnership among state adult protective services agencies, a national association, and criminal-justice researchers is overcoming the challenges.

The discussion will be moderated by Andy Mao, Senior Counsel for Health Care Fraud and Elder Justice, U.S. Department of Justice.

Panelists will include:

  • Kristen Johnson, researcher with the National Council on Crime and Delinquency. She will talk about a risk assessment for elder mistreatment that she is currently developing in New Hampshire that is funded by the National Institute of Justice.
  • Rachel Lakin, New Hampshire’s Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services. She will offer a practice and policy perspective: what makes her relationship with the researchers work? How have practices in her agency changed as a result of the research experience? And what should other adult protective services agencies think about before they get involved in a research project?
  • Kathleen Quinn, director of the National Adult Protective Services Association. She will offer a national perspective, including guidelines to help state agencies that are thinking about participating in these important research projects.
