Involving older people in research

The ARC/NHMRC Research Network in Ageing Well and The Australasian Centre on Ageing (ACA) at the University of Queensland have produced a guide for involving older people in research.

The Guide is a product of an ongoing program of work within the Network in Ageing Well and builds on a series of workshops held in 2006-2007. The Guide is intended to assist researchers, older people, community and peak organisations to work together to achieve positive outcomes from research on ageing. It provides some practical tips on how working together can help make a difference to the lives of older people.

The Guide outlines the following key considerations in researchers and older people working together: Speaking the same language; The research process; Clarifying roles;
Communicating with each other; Different expectations; Who represents older people?; The importance of mutual respect; and Disseminating findings. > read guideline
