Research Workshop: Research with Older People - Problems and Pitfalls
There is a general belief that research on older people is easy, and that it is rarely undertaken because of disinterest. Although the allocation of resources to ageing research in Australia has been meagre, research on older people is also more complicated than research on the young and middle aged. Loss of physiological reserve in multiple systems, the interaction between diseases and treatments, and decline in function and special senses all provide challenges.
There is a mistaken belief that older people should be ‘shielded’ from research which does not allow older people to choose for themselves. Some examples of these issues will be provided and workshop participants are encouraged to present their own experiences.
