SECG Presents - Building connections with older people and aged care service providers for research recruitment and collaboration


The AAG Student and Early Career Group (SECG) present a webinar:

Building connections with older people and aged care service providers for research recruitment and collaboration

Wednesday 5th May,
11.30 to 12.30pm (AEST)

Developing connections with older people and aged care providers can be challenging, particularly in the context of research recruitment. Participant recruitment can take considerable time which can pose challenges for deadlines and increase costs. Recruiting older people in residential aged care for research has ethical implications which need to be carefully considered.

This webinar will offer valuable insight and tips on how to build connections with older people and aged care service providers for research recruitment and collaboration.

Two presenters from the field of ageing will share their experience, tips and advice for recruiting older people and develop connections to aged care service providers.

Participants will:

  • Hear from successful researchers in ageing about their experiences of developing connections with aged care service providers.
  • Learn about the strengths and weaknesses of recruitment methods in aged care.
  • Identify strategies to support the building of connections with aged care service providers and older people.
