Projects

DETECT-RPC

DETECT-RPC

Detection of Elder Abuse Through Emergency Care Technicians Revised for Primary Care (DETECT-RPC) is a five-year, $5.9 million grant funded by the National Institute on Aging of the National Institutes of Health in 2022. DETECT-RPC will allow researchers at UTHealth Houston School of Public Health to address the need for effective and efficient elder mistreatment screening in primary care, particularly for older adults who are living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Dr. Cannell, PhD, MPH, previously created Detection of Elder Abuse Through Emergency Care Technicians (DETECT), a screening tool and protocol designed to help EMTs, and paramedics recognize potential elder mistreatment when responding to 911 calls in the field. The DETECT-RPC Grant will expand that program by adapting DETECT for home-based primary care.
