Statewide Elder Abuse Interventions and Enhanced Multidisciplinary Team Initiative: Enhanced Multidisciplinary Teams (E-MDTs) intervene in complex cases of elder abuse. They bring together professionals from various disciplines, including but not limited to Adult Protective Services, aging services, health and human services, and law enforcement to provide an effective and efficient means of addressing abuse of older adults (aged 60 and older). The enhancement comes with access to forensic accountants, geriatric psychiatrists/mental health professionals, and civil legal services. The E-MDT Initiative is implemented in New York State through a network of eleven regional Hub organizations that administer program implementation and provide E-MDT Coordinator services for each county. The primary focus for team meetings is to review, discuss, and intervene in cases of elder abuse, restoring safety and security of older adults, and protecting their assets. Together, team members achieve this through coordinated case reviews and tailored responses to each situation.
