The impact of historical partner violence on mental health outcomes and elder abuse in older women.
Intimate partner violence (IPV) negatively affects the physical and mental wellbeing of victims even many years after the abuse has ended. However, it is not known whether the impacts of IPV at any time over the life course continue into older age, and put older women at risk for psychological illness or elder abuse. This analysis will explore the effect of historical IPV on risk for psychological illness and elder abuse over 15 years in older women.
