The Age of Research

The Healthy Ageing Research Group (HARG) is allied with the Lincoln International Institute for Rural Health (LIIRH).

Key areas of interest include experiences of ageing; healthy ageing; preventative and early intervention strategies in quality of later life through improved community and statutory provisions, including integration.

Research in our group aims to support the challenges faced by an increasing global life expectancy and ageing populations. Our research aims to contribute to developing strategies which maximise the benefits of an ageing society as well as considering strategies to address the challenges.

Our aims:

  • To conduct research to develop our understanding of experiences of ageing and old age.
  • Examine the performance and functioning of preventative and early intervention health and social care structures, practices, procedures, and delivery with a particular emphasis on promoting quality, efficiency, and equity.
  • Fully involve older citizens and other partners in the research process.
  • To build pathways to impact into all of our research.
  • To develop a sustainable research infrastructure and environment.
