PROJECT SUMMARY FOR 2001-IJ-CX-K015

Boston College University proposes to identify and describe the forensic makers for elder sexual abuse that will be used to develop information critical for understanding how intentional sexual injuries may present in the geriatric population. This goal will be achieved through bringing together a multidisciplinary group of experts to form a working group who, through dialogue and review of confirmed and nonconfirmed cases of elder abuse, will identify forensic markers for this population.
