    Elder abuse in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender plus communities
    (2023-06-17) Marchbank, Jennifer; Robson, Claire; Gutman, Gloria; Gurm, Balbir; Reed, Kathleen J.
    This knowledge synthesis reports on the literature on the abuse of older adults who identify as 2SLGBT+ (Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer plus) published in the past decade (2013-2023). Although there is not a great deal of literature prior to 2013, what we do have indicates that 2SLGBT+ older adults face particular vulnerabilities that can make them experience elder abuse in ways that are specific to their communities and that can present additional barriers to their health and well-being.

    A scoping review of good methodological practices in research involving transgender, non-binary, and two-spirit youth
    (Journal of LGBT Youth, 2022-06-10) Reed, Kathleen J.
    Transgender, non-binary, two-spirit, and other gender non-conforming (GNC) youth have been the focus of increasing scholarly attention over the past decade. A scoping review method was applied to this growing body of literature to identify good practices and important themes in conducting research with GNC youth. A body of non-clinical, English-language scholarship was identified utilizing keywords relating to GNC youth, methods, and methodologies via searches in 33 databases, 3 specific journals, and other online sources. These works were then analyzed for good practices, with themes emerging related to institutional review boards (IRBs) and assent/consent, advisory boards and community involvement, recruitment, identity descriptions, adultism, youth agency and voice, intersectionality, knowledge mobilization, and researcher reflexivity.

    Youth and Public Transit: A Knowledge Synthesis of Recent Publications (SSHRC Forum Presentation)
    (2022-01-20) Reed, Kathleen; Marchbank, Jennifer; Travers
    Historically, youth (13-25) have been one of the most active user groups of public transit in Canada, accounting for one-third of ridership nation-wide, and up to two-thirds in cities such as Moose Jaw, SK and Red Deer, AB (Canadian Urban Transit Association, 2004). Despite their high usage of public transportation, youth as a specific category of riders have received an underwhelming amount of focus by academics and transit authorities. This presentation to the Mobility and Public Transit Knowledge Mobilization Forum - hosted by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and Infrastructure Canada - synthesizes the last ten years of evidence, policy, and pilot projects related to youth as a public transportation user group in order to provide an up-to-date summary of the state of knowledge in this area. The final section of this work consists of an evidence-based agenda for future research and policy, with an eye toward enhancing the equity of access to transit systems for youth riders.
