CNPEA is looking for expert media delegates and you could be one of them!



The Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse wishes to provide a coherent and unified voice on key points relating to elder abuse. Our communications policy and practices are guided by the belief that the CNPEA should be a credible, forthcoming source of information on elder abuse across Canada.

With this goal in mind, we are curating a list of designated expert delegates to help us respond to increasing media requests requiring a specific geographic response or area of expertise.

BACKGROUND

The Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (CNPEA) is seeking proposals for a consultant/ researcher for a three-year project entitled Increasing Access to Justice for Older Adult Victims of Sexual Assault: A Capacity Building Approach” (“Increasing Access Project”). 

The consultant must have strong research skills with knowledge and expertise on issues related to elder abuse, sexual assault, disability and the law. The researcher will be required to review literature, identify and evaluate existing resources for professionals working in the field, and write high quality academic reports. The researcher must have relevant academic training at a graduate level and previous experience with similar projects. Experience supervising a graduate level research assistant also would be an asset.
