Join UWS research to help older people

Dr Margaret Brown at the University of Western Scotland (UWS) is running a seminar bringing together student nurses, trained staff and older people to find out what is useful to older people. See below for details on the seminar.

We were lucky enough to win a small sum of money to run a seminar day here at the Hamilton Campus.

We had been trying to encourage our student nurses to become involved in research with older people so we decided to use the fund to bring together student nurses, trained staff and older people, from 12 midday on the 31st August 2017.

We hope to do some work about what research would be useful for older people. We are calling this a Research Ideas Jam. In a ‘Jam’ you work with people you might never have met before, bouncing ideas off one another and building on these ideas.

We would love to have members of the ALLIANCE to work with us on the day. We will have lunch then the work will begin. As you know there is no such thing as a free lunch!!

If you are interested in encouraging these young people to do useful research with older people please do come along. You will be made very welcome.
