This free event is a Webinar and takes place online. Registration is required.
Elder abuse and neglect is a growing issue as America ages. There are several physical markers which help to identify elder mistreatment. Some of these include physical conditions such as documented but untreated injuries, inconsistencies between the reported time of death and condition of the body, and signs of malnutrition and dehydration.
This webinar is the second in a two-part series on elder abuse, sponsored by the Government Innovators Network and the National Institute of Justice (the first webinar examined incidence and prevalence).
Listen to experts discuss what they know about bruising as well as the important role of forensic information and technology in effectively investigating cases of elder abuse and neglect. Ample time will be allocated for audience Q&A.
