Prevalence studies in the UK and Canada found approximately 5% of people aged over 65 experience
abuse in any one year. The World Health Organization estimates 10% of older people globally are victims of abuse.
Our annual seminar will showcase innovations in policy, practice and research across Australia and in the UK.
Opening address by Hon Ken Wyatt, Minister for Aged Care and Minister for Indigenous Health.
As well as the work that NARI is championing on the topic, delegates will hear from Trischia Ritchie from the Aged Rights Advocacy Service about how they are working with Aboriginal communities to prevent elder abuse. There will also be a virtual interview with Dr Claudia Cooper, a pre-eminent elder abuse researcher from University College London who will talk about elder abuse in care relationships in the UK.
