In Situ Training Programme in Gerontology, Geriatrics and Policy: Aged Care in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Date(s)13-17 August 2018
OrganisationInternational Institute on Ageing in collaboration with Institute for Gerontology,Universiti Putra Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur
LocationKuala Lumpur Malaysia
DetailsUpon the establishment of the International Institute on Ageing, United Nations-Malta (INIA), it was immediately envisaged and planned that the organisational experience acquired from the Malta-based training programmes should be transplanted overseas as  in-situ  programmes.The advantage of these programmes is that the training can be specifically tailored as appropriate to, and rooted in, local socio-economic conditions and needs.

This enables policy discussions throughout the training programme to be more focused and culturally sensitive than INIA s customary training programmes.

OrganisationOxford Institute of Population Ageing
LocationOxford England
DetailsBy 2040, nearly one in seven people in Western Europe is projected to be over the age of 75. With many countries facing similar predictions, supporting the ageing population to live healthier lives is necessary to address functional loss, both mental and physical. This three-week intensive innovation programme will aim to tackle the challenges of the ageing population and develop disruptive and scalable solutions. The programme is hosted by University of Oxford - Saïd Business School, the Sorbonne University, in Paris and the Oxford Academic Health Science Network (hosted by Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust). There will be the opportunity to work on real-challenges raised by the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing by implementing the FORTH methodology, which doubles the effectiveness of the innovation process and is implemented worldwide by organisations both in the profit and non-profit sector, and healthcare organisations.

It will call on human rights professionals from different fields to reflect on how they can integrate the fight against ageism in their work. And, since ageism cuts across the age spectrum, the session will also discuss ageism as it is experienced both by old and young people. For more information email above link.

Public Health: The Unusual Suspects

Date(s)24 October 2018
OrganisationOpen Forum Events
LocationManchester England
DetailsThe aim of this meeting is to highlight matters that present considerable public health concern but lack the emphasis on the more conventional subjects. Loneliness and social isolation have now been established as a growing concern in the UK, not only for its devastating impact on individual's quality of life but also on their health; poverty is still exerting its negative influence on health throughout society; fuel poverty continues to contribute to excess winter deaths. Connected communities are healthier communities. When the links are broken, health and well-being are compromised. These issues, along with air pollution, shift work, climate change and extreme weather events will also be discussed.

In Situ Training Programme in Gerontology and Geriatrics

Date(s)10-14 December 2018
OrganisationInternational Institute on Ageing in collaboration with Support and Nursing Committee for the Elderly, Beijing, China
LocationBeijing China
DetailsUpon the establishment of the International Institute on Ageing, United Nations-Malta (INIA), it was immediately envisaged and planned that the organisational experience acquired from the Malta-based training programmes should be transplanted overseas as  in-situ  programmes.The advantage of these programmes is that the training can be specifically tailored as appropriate to, and rooted in, local socio-economic conditions and needs. The participants are generally involved in similar tasks and responsibilities and more familiar with the national, regional and local cultural situations. This enables policy discussions throughout the training programme to be more focused and culturally sensitive than INIA s customary training programmes.
