Collective flow measurements continue to play an important role in ongoing efforts to map out the temperature dependence of the transport coefficient $\frac{\eta}{s}(T)$, for the strongly interacting matter produced in heavy ion collisions at RHIC. Recently, PHENIX has performed a detailed set of measurements of the higher-order flow coefficients ($v_{n}$ for n=2,3,4), for both inclusive and identified charged hadrons. The results from these new measurements in Au+Au collisions will be presented, as a function of $p_T$, centrality and beam collision energy, in concert with several scaling properties observed for these data. The role of these results as additional constraints for $\frac{\eta}{s}(T)$ will also be discussed.
