Interventions and Services which Address Elder Abuse

Aim and Objectives

The aim of this review was to synthesise and critically appraise published studies and research related to the efficacy of interventions and protective practice in the field of elder abuse. The review aimed to establish current knowledge related to the effectiveness of interventions with the purpose of contributing to the evidence-base for protective practice.


The objectives of the review were:

  • To summarise and describe the published evidence for practice, including intervention trials as well as descriptive accounts of practitioners’ personal experience and service users’ evaluations and responses to practice.
  • To critically appraise existing research studies in order to examine the efficacy of evidence for interventions and service delivery.
  • To identify future directions for research to contribute to the development of protective practice and thereby inform evidence-based practice for the management of elder abuse cases.
