Short description

The project consists of two parts:
1) " User involvement in research with and for frail older people ", which is part of the larger research programme "UserAge - Understanding user participation in research on aging and health". The project is carried out in collaboration between Gothenburg-, Linnaeus-, Kristianstad and Lund University (1). The purpose of the project is to explore the potential for, and challenges with, involving frail older people as partners in the research process.
2) A study to explore older people's motives and experiences regarding participation in the H70 study (2).

The results will be used to develop a more person-centred and H70 health-literate organization (3), in collaboration between older people and researchers.
