There is increased societal pressure to deal with an ageing population and a rising chronic disease burden.  This burden is largely attributed to “wicked” health behaviours such as inactivity and poor nutrition, which are complex and have large variance between individuals and settings.  One increasingly advocated way to tackle these “wicked” problems is to actively engage end-users and other stakeholders in research.  Participatory processes such as this are thought to increase the quality of service provision and improve end-user satisfaction.

The purpose of this webinar is to highlight the opportunities provided by utilising participatory methodologies in ageing research.  Specifically, working examples will be given to show how utilising key elements from participatory methodologies can be directly applied to ageing research at a local and population level.  Recommendations will also be provided for how to effectively involve non-academic stakeholders in ageing research in a systematic and reproducible way.
