Sight loss and older people: public involvement meeting
Are you interested in getting involved with research to help improve the lives of older people and the impact of sight loss?
We are pleased to invite members of the public to join us at a drop-in meeting to find out more about the project and ways in which you can get involved. The meeting will be taking place on:
Date: Monday 15th February 2016
Time: 11.00am and 1.00pm
Venue: The University of Sheffield, School of Health and Related Research, The Innovation Centre, 217 Portobello, Sheffield, S1 4DP.
We are looking for a few volunteers to be involved in a project to develop ways to improve detection of and access to care for older people with sight loss in Sheffield. If you know through personal experience or acquaintances about the impact sight loss can have on older people's independence or wellbeing, we would like to invite you to come to an informal chat.
Peter Cudd and I are health and social care researchers at the School of Health and Related Research, University of Sheffield. We are working in collaboration with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as part of this project.
