This project resulted in the development of new training and learning for service providers about the sexual assault of older adults, and of a  centralized repository of resources about sexual assault of older adults. CNPEA gathered, curated, and synthesized a detailed, array of key resources and materials about sexual assault of older adults.

This is the second literature review produced for this project. It was designed for a broad audience including researchers, policymakers, advocates, health care providers, and social service providers. It is divided into three main sections.
