Event description

Description

About the lecture:

Alexandra Burton and Kartikeya Tripathi will present findings from a cross-departmental research programme (Division of Psychiatry and Security and Crime Science), exploring challenges of ageing in a globalised world. They will explore how migration and digitalisation affect older people’s needs for support and care, through the prisms of two of our recent research studies: with older victims of cybercrime in Mumbai (Kartikeya); and South Asian carers of people with dementia in England (Burton). They will discuss how we can build on our qualitative research findings and existing manualised interventions #MadeAtUCL to develop culturally competent care interventions.
