Abstract

Involving and consulting with the users of social care services has become a dominant strand in the development of policy and practice regarding service delivery. Researchers are increasingly required to address issues of user participation within their proposed research. This volume describes ways in which older people can participate in research projects as originators of research questions; advisors on methodology; analysts of data; fieldworkers; and disseminators of findings.
