VEPT members are actively involved in ground-breaking research to improve identification, intervention, and prevention of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation, particularly in health care settings. We’ve been invited to present our work at local, national, and international conferences. We’ve published on our work extensively in academic journals. A sample of our recent publications includes:
