We are excited to announce the release of a monograph that showcases which resulted from a day long Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) Symposium entitled, Elder Abuse Multidisciplinary Teams: Planning for the Future, attended by elder justice experts and funders from across the country. Held in New York City in September 2014, the symposium focused on highlighting the value of MDTs and ways to sustain and replicate them nationwide. More →
The NYCEAC is a public/private multidisciplinary partnership, bringing collective expertise to bear on the issue of elder abuse. Our values guide our work.
- Respect for elders and a concern for keeping elders safe and free from harm.
- Person-centered service, with each client having a right to privacy; a right to be free from fear, abuse and ageism; and a right to experience safety, dignity, well-being, self-determination and respect.
- Respect for each colleague and their individual discipline, understanding the challenges professionals experience when doing this work.
- Shared accountability – to the individual’s organization, to NYCEAC and the multidisciplinary team, when applicable.
- Sharing and leveraging existing resources to maximize efficiency.
- Transparent and effective decision-making processes, with all stakeholders at the table, having an equal voice.
