Supporting Novice Researchers Event at Hamilton Campus

Posted on Updated on

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.
