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 NYC Elder Abuse Center (NYCEAC) actively engages key decision makers in discussions about elder abuse and neglect to:
- educate them about the complexities and prevalence of this problem; and
- inform them of vital NYC elder justice-related programs, including the work of NYCEAC.
To this end, NYCEAC, in partnership with the Council of Senior Centers and Services (CSCS) and the Geriatric Mental Health Alliance of NY (GMHA), initiated the Leadership Education Project (LEP) to further these goals. The aims of this project are to:
- identify key NYS/NYC decision-makers who should be informed about elder abuse issues and NYCEAC’s work; and
- develop and implement an action plan for engaging them on these issues.
We will share the results of this important project on this website, so please check here for that information in the Spring 2012.
