New Dynamics of Ageing Programme (UK Research Council)

[A version of this item appears in: Dementia: the Latest Evidence Newsletter (RWHT), Volume 2 Issue 8, March 2012].


The New Dynamics of Ageing (NDA) programme is a seven-year multidisciplinary research initiative. The broad aim is to improve the quality of life for older people. This programme involves collaboration between five UK Research Councils (ESRC, EPSRC, BBSRC, MRC and AHRC).

Older people often find that their health problems challenge their sense of independence, dignity and identity. Health care can sometimes not help as expected. According to a research report funded by the NDA programme (available to members only), healthcare providers should avoid a “blanket view” of how to help older people cope with ageing.
