Research to Practice
To make findings from important elder abuse research readily available to professionals, policy makers, the media and the public, NCEA publishes research “translations.” These “translations” present, in a brief format, the most pertinent information and findings from a single study as it applies to professional practice in the field of elder abuse. NCEA will publish these “translations” as they are available.

Research Investigator Development
In order to bridge the gap between research and health or social service agencies which serve as partners in the research process, NCEA is collaborating with sub-grantee Weill-Cornell College, Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology to establish links between researchers and the community programs that serve people victimized by elder abuse.
