New tool will help standardize elder abuse data

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released a tool that aims to help standardize the way that elder abuse data is collected and managed, in the hopes that we can gain a more accurate picture of the problem and impact of elder abuse at the local, state, and national levels.

The tool, Elder Abuse Surveillance: Uniform Definitions and Recommended Core Data Elements, is a set of uniform definitions and recommended core data elements for possible use in standardizing the collection of elder abuse data locally and nationally.
