Older People, Sexuality & Intimacy. A Chance to Influence a Research Agenda

This dialogical event will address the awareness gap concerning old people sexuality and intimacy. It will pivot around qualitative research conducted by the OPUS research initiative (based at Universities of Manchester, Bradford, Queensland and Edge Hill) on older care home residents and responses to the OPUS ‘findings.’

This event presents an opportunity for academics across various disciplines, health and care practitioners and anyone interested to learn of, respond to and discuss the implications of the study. The event will present opportunities for plenary discussion, group discussions designed to identify the varied, complex challenges presented by this issue and what might constitute good/best practice. It also presents an opportunity to shape a newly emerging research agenda and a bid to conduct national/cross-national research on sexual/intimate citizenship and people aged 60 and above.
