Including older people from disadvantaged groups in research practice: A compensation series
Date: February 22, 2022 at 2:00pm AT/1:00pm ET
Description: Research practice often overlooks larger questions about meaningful participation, disadvantage, and vulnerability. One notable example is how standard and historical practices of not-compensating particular groups, or of restricting compensation as a form of control, can contribute to inequality and sustain harmful practices against older people from disadvantaged groups. Dr. Grenier will discuss and share a series developed by AGE-WELL’s CC1 team on knowledge mobilization. This webinar is intended to start a conversation about the importance of compensation, and serve as a resource for funders, ethics committees, universities, and academic faculty and students carrying out research with older people in Canada.
Speaker: Amanda Grenier, Professor and Norman and Honey Schipper Chair in Gerontological Social Work at the University of Toronto and Baycrest Hospital
