Abstract
Factors social workers use in practice to detect elder financial abuse are currently unknown. A critical incident technique was applied within a judgement analysis approach to elicit cue use. Only three factors were key to decision-making: who raises concern, the elder's mental capacity and the nature of the financial anomaly occurring. © The Author(s) 2011.
