An estimated 7% of older adults experience financial exploitation annually in the United States. This is likely an underestimation, making it one of the most common forms of elder mistreatment. In this session, three experts from the fields of Elder Mistreatment and Financial Exploitation will share the most recent evidence and expert practices from basic science to the bedside.  Learning Objectives: (1) judge the rationale and future promise of using neuroimaging as a tool to understand financial exploitation vulnerability in older adults; (2) assess for financial decision-making capacity in a vulnerable older adult experiencing or at risk for financial exploitation; (3) identify racial, ethnic, and cultural differences in financial exploitation experience and perception of harm that may be present in diverse populations; and (4) formulate a culturally tailored intervention and prevention plan for the serially financially exploited adult by overcoming barriers and leveraging community-based strategies and national resources.
