Together Making Change 5th National Elder Abuse Conference has four concurrent themes
These themes explore the complexities of the abuse of older people through acknowledging that the social and cultural changes necessary to prevent elder abuse will happen with long-term, multi-faceted, culture-wide approaches. Academics and researchers, policy makers and government agencies, public servants, service providers, and community workers who have contact with older people, will come together in a vibrant and robust exchange of ideas, solutions and responses to elder abuse.
