National APS Resource Center: Research
The National APS Resource Center is involved in numerous research initiatives with multiple partners. Our research initiatives are focused on affirming objective, evidence-based practices for APS professionals, then putting “research-to-practice” toward bridging the gap between theory and real-world applications.
Many of the National APS Resource Center research initiatives have been undertaken as a collaborative venture with the National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (NCPEA).
The joint NAPSA-NCPEA Research Committee has developed guiding principles for APS research projects which you can view here:
