The Older People’s Understandings of Sexuality (OPuS) research group, (Manchester and Bradford Universities), is organizing a FREE half-day conference on older care home residents and sexuality/intimacy. The event will take place 2pm - 5pm, Monday 14 July 2014, conference room G.036B, Jean Macfarlane building, University of Manchester. Lunch will be available from 1pm.
The event will share results of consultative research by interviews with residents and care home staff (in the Northwest and Yorkshire). It will focus on the significance of doing any such research, how it should be done and good practice in consulting on a sensitive issue with a seldom heard group of people. We will also consult with conference participants on how to carry our ideas forward in any future national research.
The event will involve speakers from OPuS and care homes. It is open to anyone but should interest residents, relatives, care home staff and private providers, nursing and social work practitioners, academics and statutory and voluntary sector organizations and staff.
