Postdoc project: Depression in old age

The project examines both lived experiences of depression in old age and perceptions of depression in old age among health professionals working with early identification and prevention of depression. Questions about the distinct characteristics of depression in old age as well as the significance of life conditions and expectations of old age in development and identification of depression will guide the project. Hence, the project will contribute with perspectives on the aging body, the aging mind, and how illness develops and is managed late in life. The project is carried out in cooperation with Dansk Selskab for Patientsikkerhed, Thisted Kommune and Faaborg-Midt Kommune.
