In discussing the context for giving priority to the forensic aspects of elder abuse investigations, participants report on the prevalence of elder abuse and neglect as the U.S. population experiences longer lives that often lead to dependence on others, particularly family members. This situation has the potential for family members or caretakers to take advantage of the diminished capacities and social isolation of elderly family members or patients. In discussing forensic evidence in such cases, webinar presenters identify and discuss several physical markers that help investigators to determine whether elder physical abuse has occurred. 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 was the second in a two-part series on elder abuse. Slides presented in the three presentations are accessible in PDF format.
