Clinical Research with Older People
Date: 17 March 2020
Venue: Great Gable, Floor 1, Biomedical Research Building
An interactive workshop which explores the challenges and opportunities associated with involving older people in clinical research.
- Strategies to approach and recruit older people to clinical studies in a range of settings
- Legal and ethical considerations
- The advantages of involving older people in the design and planning stages of research
- Accessing “hard to reach” groups such as black and ethnic minority older people and people with dementia
You will be encouraged to consider whether there is a role for older people in your own research project, and an opportunity to interact with older people who have previously participated in research projects who are volunteers from Voice North.
Delivered by Dr Ellen Tullo as part of the NIHR Newcastle Training Network.
