Elder Abuse Fatality Review Teams

Elder abuse fatality review teams (EA-FRT) bring together a group of professionals to examine deaths that result from or relate to a certain cause, in order to improve the thing or system that caused, contributed to, or failed to prevent the death and, thus, prevent similar deaths in the future. The primary goal of an EA-FRT is the improvement of services to victims so that they receive the services and interventions they need.
