Conference

Entitled ‘Unlocking Solutions’, the conference will bring together experts from Australia and overseas to share information on topics that will assist in elder abuse research, intervention and policy. Delegates from government agencies, academics, researchers, health professionals and corporate personnel are expected to attend.

Elder abuse is an act which causes harm to an older person and occurs within an informal relationship of trust, most commonly perpetrated by family or friends. Elder abuse, whilst highly prevalent in the community, is very much hidden and needs a unified response to develop a comprehensive multi-level elder abuse strategy. This same process worked successfully when applied to fields such as domestic violence and child abuse prevention, which are now better reported, well publicised and have the support of the community and government.
