This project reviewed current policy, legislative, and service responses to elder abuse in Queensland in order to provide a snapshot of the current context as well as an evidence base to allow stakeholders, including government and non-government organisations, to better understand the prevalence and characteristics of elder abuse in the State. Current legislative, policy and service responses and interventions to elder abuse have been mapped in order to identify issues, needs and gaps in elder abuse prevention and service responses in Queensland. Detailed input from stakeholders and a dedicated research reference group was incorporated into the research design and activities. Elder abuse data from a number of government and non-government stakeholder organisations was synthesised and analysed.
