Year in Review
The Elder Abuse Prevention Unit produces research and reports related to elder abuse. Our annual Year in Review provides a detailed and insightful analysis of elder abuse occurring in close/intimate relationships throughout Queensland, including insights on victims, perpetrators and notifiers. It has proven to be a strong advocacy tool to demonstrate what elder abuse is, as well as inform prevention and response strategies.

Elder abuse is a complex social issue, and the Year in Review report highlights the multidimensional nature of elder abuse. Many demographical factors are considered with the analysis, such as who reports abuse in regions, individual factors surrounding victims and perpetrators including trauma, patterns of abuse and much more.
The Elder Abuse Prevention Unit’s research has been presented at national and international conferences and is widely quoted as a primary source by news media organisations, researchers, students, training organisations and conference presenters.
The Elder Abuse Helpline collects anonymous data about all call types; however, only cases involving a victim who is aged 50 years or older are analysed. De-identified information collected from calls to the Helpline is entered into a database and analysed annually under a bifocal ecological framework.
