Good Practice Guide - Involving Older People in Research, example purposes and good practice
12th October 2008, ERA-AGE
Marian Barnes, Dr Sam L Taylor
This ERA-AGE Guide is intended to encourage those engaged in various aspects of research to consider and endorse appropriate approaches to involving older people in research. The guide seeks to encourage older people's involvement in research processes in order to produce relevant outcomes for older people themselves. The good practice guide provides several European-based examples of older people playing successful significant and different roles in research in a variety of contexts. In addition, some general recommendations are made which are drawn from the collective experience of researchers from across Europe.
