Public Health England: Research Priorities for Healthy Ageing

In June Public Health England finalised a list of identified research gaps and priorities around healthy ageing.

These were identified through stakeholder surveys and discussions earlier this year. The list will be used to inform the development of PHE’s healthy ageing programme, as well as prioritising the work of PHE’s Older Adults team in supporting researchers in preparing bids and disseminating findings.

This webinar was an opportunity to look in more detail at these priorities, the thinking behind them and how they will be used in the future.

Bernie Hannigan, PHE’s Director of Research Translation and Innovation, introduced the work of PHE, and was joined by Helen Brock, Programme Manager for Adults and Older Adults in PHE’s Life Course Team, who explained the gap analysis and the function of the research priorities.
