It discusses conceptual, methodological, and logistical issues that must be addressed before the creation of a solid research base, and looks at ethical concerns related to conducting research with older subjects. It also looks at problems in identifying and reporting mistreatment and the role of physicians and other medical professionals who are in a position to report abuse.
