Special Issue "Ageing, A Multidisciplinary Perspective"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2018).
This Special Issue is dedicated to addressing aging-related issues, including improving quality of life and fostering independent living. With our innovative technology-enabled health solutions, we aim to support older people to manage their conditions, which may result from the physical and biological processes of ageing. Through these innovations, we aim to bring greater sustainability to technology-enabled health services, in order to create business opportunities and economic growth.
As authors working together in our Positive Ageing Institute (PARI), our shared vision of aging is one that considers older people as valuable assets to society/community, employment, business, economy, culture/the arts and policy development and change. With this vision in mind, we take our lead from older people, exploring their perceptions of what positive ageing is and what it means to them. We also emphasise our focus on the future ageing population recognising the changing needs of different generations and individuals.
This collection of papers represent our work and bring together the multidisiplinary team. We address some of the key issues highlighted by older adults as influencing positive ageing. Such issues may include health, but also the socio-economic factors such as pensions, finance or work. This demonstrates the research focus of PARI now and where we plan to go in the future.Prof. Dr. Patricia Schofield
