Help Manchester academics choose priorities for LGBT ageing research
5 February 2015
Researchers are asking members of the public to identify the most important areas for researching Lesbian Gay Bisexual and trans* (LGBT) ageing.
Older people, service users, service providers, academics and students are all encouraged to contribute to the 15 minute survey.
On 22 October 2014, MICRA and the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work at The University of Manchester, supported by the Morgan Centre for Research into Everyday Lives, Age UK and the Lesbian and Gay Foundation, brought together academics, researchers, policy makers and practitioners to consider the future research priorities in relation to ageing LGBT individuals. This conference, organised by Dr Stephen Hicks, Dr Maurice Nagington and Dr Tommy Dickinson identified 60 research priorities relevant to LGBT ageing. We now need to identify the most important ones.
The first stage of this process is asking as many and varied people as possible to complete a survey to rank the 60 different priorities. The survey is split into the following areas:
- Gay men, ageing and HIV
- Older lesbian and bisexual women
- Trans* ageing
- Research methodologies
Please complete the survey.
