Abstract

The Elder Investment Fraud and Financial Exploitation Program (EIFFE) began in 2009 as a pilot project funded by the Investor Protection Trust (IPT) and supported by the Texas State Securities Board. The IPT grant to Baylor College of Medicine targeted Texas primary care physicians for continuing medical education on how to screen their older patients for vulnerability to being financially exploited. What began in Texas is developing into a national program that regulates various financial advisors. The IPT has teamed with national organizations to keep offering continuing education for health professionals to increase their clinical awareness of the issue and provide them with screening and referral tools.
