AAG SECG Webinar - Participant recruitment

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

Wednesday 5th May - 11.30am 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.

AAG's Student and Early Career Group (SECG) presents a webinar that 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.

Presenters: Dr Claudia Meyer and Dr Jed Montayre

Online Event to discuss Ageism in Healthcare

Health Consumers NSW (HCNSW) and the Older Women’s Network (OWN) NSW have completed an investigation into older people’s experiences of ageism in healthcare resulting in a report – “What Can You Expect at Your Age?!” – an investigation of recent experiences of age discrimination by older adults accessing health care. The report shines a light on the experiences and points of view of older Australians using health care services in NSW and Australia.

HCNSW and OWN are hosting an online event tomorrow, 23rd April (10:30am – 12pm, Sydney time) to discuss the issue. Amongst the panellists will be AAG members Professors Dimity Pond and Vasi Naganathan, and it will be chaired by former NSW Division Co-chair Anthony Brown.

You can download the report and register for the online event here
