Financial exploitation of older adults is a significant public health concern. However, the reasons why certain older adults are susceptible to scam and fraud are poorly understood. This presentation will review neuropsychological, neuroimaging, and other scientific evidence focused on elucidating the underlying factors and neurobiological mechanisms associated with risk of financial exploitation in older age. Implications for clinical practice and public policy will also be discussed.
1. Describe the impact of cognitive impairment on financial exploitation risk in older age.
2. Explain the neurobiological mechanisms underlying financial decision making and fraud risk in older age.
3. Discuss the impact of available evidence on clinical practice and public policy.
