Living Longer Community Priority Setting Partnership Project

We are experiencing changes that will extend lives long beyond what has previously been regarded as old age. A child born today will have a 50/50 chance of living to more than 105 years of age and by 2040 this will be 110 years.  It is important that we think about how to maximise the quality of these extra years so everyone can take advantage of the opportunities that living longer might bring.

For this reason, researchers from the University of Western Australia and the WA Health Translation Network’s Consumer and Community Health Research Network want to hear about what you would like to see researched to help your decision-making and planning for the future. 

Have your say in the living longer survey

It is important that future research in this area is informed by your ideas and experiences so please feel free to include any thought(s) on areas related to ageing you feel are important. Be assured we will value everyone’s perspectives and opinions.

Please read the Participant Information Form for any questions you may have about this project.
