Elder abuse and neglect is a growing issue as America ages. There are several physical markers which help to identify elder mistreatment. Some of these include physical conditions such as documented but untreated injuries, inconsistencies between the reported time of death and condition of the body, and signs of malnutrition and dehydration.

This Webinar was the second in a two-part series on elder abuse, sponsored by the Government Innovators Network and the National Institute of Justice (you may also view a *recording* of the first Webinar which examined on incidence and prevalence).
