Ageing and Long-Term Conditions

Our work focuses on improving care and service delivery that can enhance the health and wellbeing of people living within an ageing society.

Our Research Group focuses on improving care and service delivery that can help the health and wellbeing of people living within an ageing society. Our group brings together academics and clinicians locally, nationally and internationally.

We take a proactive and person-centred approach to our research. We are committed to participatory and inclusive research that can improve the lives of older people and people living with long-term conditions.

Our research areas include:

An emerging area of research involves the use of paired or dyadic data collected using observational methods and self-report.

The analysis of dyadic data from distinguishable partners within a given relationship structure (such as spouses, cohabiting, caregiving) allows us to study ageing-related health outcomes as joint constructs.

Understanding how social interactions and exchange within close relationships promote or undermine health will inform the development of more effective interventions to help individuals and their relationship partners with health-related challenges.
