cover dawn needs assessment report 2023This report expands awareness of the intersections of elder abuse and disability, with an emphasis on financial abuse. This funding opportunity, provided through NHSP, allows DAWN to build on an existing body of work and research in the area of violence and abuse, and identify priority areas for future research. This report includes a review of key research, existing tools and resources for public education and prevention, and tangible next steps for DAWN to carry out post-report to further advance work at the intersections of age, disability, and abuse, as well as other intersecting identities. This report serves as the needs assessment portion of the project which will inform existing gaps, awareness needs, and practical tools and resources for stakeholders.
