Workshop: Measuring resilience among older adults

From MICRA and the Frailty, Resilience and Inequality in Later Life (fRaill) project.

One of the biggest challenges in research on successful ageing is understanding what makes some groups of older adults resilient to negative life events that tend to cluster more frequently in later life.

However, before we can uncover the drivers of such resilience, there is still considerable uncertainty in conceptualising and defining what resilience means among older adults.

This workshop brought together leading researchers across different disciplines who have approached the topic using qualitative and quantitative approaches, using a variety of data sources.
