Health and Care Systems in the Era of Super Ageing

Date(s)9 October 2018
OrganisationDaiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation
LocationLondon England
DetailsVarious demographic, social and economic shifts across Europe and Asia have increased concern regarding the ability of these societies to provide sufficient quality and quantity care for their older citizens. As both the UK and Japan continue to age, health and care systems will have to adapt to be able to afford health services. In this seminar, Haruka Sakamoto will discuss the current status of the Japanese health and care system, looking at the reforms which are taking place and explaining what other changes, such as greater integration and a shift from cure to care, are necessary to create a health system which can deliver quality care at an affordable level. Patrick Hall will then look at how changes in societies have created new social challenges, and the effects that these changes have had on the concept and provision of care and the composition of care systems. He will discuss his work in comparing care regimes in the UK and what he thinks the British and Japanese systems can learn from one another.

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.

OrganisationManchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing (MICRA)
LocationStirling Scotland
DetailsThe SENSE-Cog Sensory Intervention is a novel sensory remediation intervention for people with dementia who also experience hearing and/or vision loss. The sensory intervention is currently being empirically tested for efficacy in a large scale RCT which is comparing outcomes for those who receive the intervention against those who receive care as usual.In this seminar, MICRA will talk about its work from the SENSE-cog project (http://www.sense-cog.eu/), and case studies of the first participants who have received the sensory intervention will be presented in order to contextualise the intervention within people with dementia's lives and stimulate discussion about its scope with this varied population.

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.
