A Creative Exploration of Ageing Across Our Lives

Date(s)21 July 2018
OrganisationUniversity of Kent, Centre for Policy on Ageing
LocationCanterbury England
DetailsArtists of all ages - including visual and performance artists, photographers, poets, musicians, dancers, writers and film makers - are invited to explore, create and play with the very notion of ageing; and to consider the implications, both in the broadest sense and personal, our perceptions of self in time past, present and future - not so much later life but across the life course. The organisers are looking to develop a new perspective on ageing from an artist's point of view. Alongside climate change and terrorism, ageing has been considered as one of the three grand challenges facing the UK and yet little is understood about it and how it affects us. Free to attend, with lunch and refreshments provided.

Ageing in Modern Times

Date(s)2-3 July 2018
OrganisationFaculty of the Psychology of Older People (FPOP), British Psychological Society
LocationCambridge England
DetailsMore people are living longer with long term conditions, co-morbid mental health problems and dementia and services are challenged with how to meet the needs of this group. At the same time, the 'baby boomers' who often do not feel that they are 'older people' by traditional older adult service definition, are challenging services to provide something that better meets their needs. Innovations in technology, advances in therapeutic practice / third-wave therapies, and outcomes of recent research can help with meeting these challenges. The conference will be of interest to psychologists working with older adults, trainee and assistant psychologists and will update attendees on the latest developments from the FPOP work streams in dementia, neurodegenerative disorders, and inpatients. Invited keynote speakers and workshops will include experts from areas such as leadership, functional mental health disorders and dementia care.

Loneliness in Later Life: Social Problem, Public Health Problem, or Moral Panic? MICRA's 2018 Annual Public Lecture

Date(s)2 July 2018
OrganisationMICRA Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Aging
LocationManchester England
DetailsThe established representation of loneliness in the UK was as a social problem of old age: a characterisation that can be traced back to the surveys of older people conducted in the immediate post war period by Sheldon and developed by Townsend and Tunstall. This lecture will explore how and why loneliness has been transformed from a social problem of old age to a public health problem with health consequences worse than smoking to a moral panic whereby loneliness among older people generates  excess  service use that threatens the very future of the NHS.This lecture has the ambition to challenge this now established corpus of received wisdom and cast a more creative and critical gaze on the topic of loneliness in later life with the aim of generating fresh thinking.

In Situ Training Programme in Policy Planning, Implementation and Monitoring of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing

Date(s)15-19 October 2018
OrganisationInternational Institute on Ageing in collaboration with Fundacion NTD Ingredientes, Dominican Republic
Location Dominican Republic
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.

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.
