This article synthesizes what has been learned from the entire polyvictimization in later-life project and offers five categories of recommendations for addressing polyvictimization and its elderly victims through practice, policy, and research.
The five recommendations relate to definitions and frameworks, practice, training and education, research and evidence-based interventions, and prevention.
