On Thursday 31st August 2017, the School held a British Society of Gerontology small event at the Caird Building, Hamilton Campus.The event was supported by NHS Lanarkshire. The event successfully brought together students, older people, health and social care practitioners and lecturers from across Lanarkshire to look at some of the research and work carried out by the School and within NHS previously with the afternoon spent conducting a research jam which looked at generating ideas for key issues where research into health and social care practice would be likely to have the most benefit to the local population of older people.
A key message from the afternoon was nothing about us without us and the need for more humanistic approaches to be taken in future work. The report and feedback from today will be sent to the BSG, the Health Board and the participants and will be used to guide our Masters and PhD students working locally on what subjects could be examined and what type of research is required as they decide on their dissertation topics.
The final part of the day was the launch of our Tovertafel original which will be used in a local collaborative research project with Udston Hospital.
Within the School the NES/SSSC National Dementia Champions teaching team have been working towards setting up a Masters Programme that will extend the work they do by creating a new pathway through our MSc in Gerontology and Later Life Programme.
Last month saw the approval of this new pathway which has also involved an alteration to the name of the original MSc Programme. So the School now hosts:
An MSc in Gerontology and the new pathway the MSc in Gerontology (with Dementia Care). Details of both courses can be found at:

Our MSc in Global Primary Care Management is focussed on improving population health status by integrating elements of traditional ‘health’ and business thinking. It aims to encourage creativity and innovation, to develop wider systems thinking and to generate sustainable and measurable changes in primary care systems and/or services in target populations. The programme benefits greatly from the unique blending of expertise in two Schools (Health & Business) in creating a new type of graduate. You can click here for more details and to apply!
Staff from the Undergraduate Programme Board attended the ‘Working Differently Across Boundaries: Transforming Health and Social Care’ NHS Scotland Event 2017 at the SECC in Glasgow, held between 20-21ST June 2017. The School hosted a stand, to promote the School’s portfolio of programmes at the event.

They also met with someone ‘old’ (as in…from our recent past….)… Professor John Rae former Head of School.
…And someone ‘new’ (…well by comparison new….)… Our new Honorary Professor Anne Hendry.
Overall, a very worthwhile event.
