On Hold

Middle-Aged Resiliency and Resistance Study (MARRS): A Qualitative Study of the Influence of Ageism and

Age-Inclusivity on the Midlife Years

Principal Investigator: Donna Dumitrescu

The midlife – typically defined as the ages between 45 to 64 years – has been largely overlooked in the research on lifespan development. The aim of this research study was to gain an understanding of the ideas held about midlife from a lifespan perspective (i.e., Saskatchewan residents ages 25 to 84 years), and to collect middle adults’ experiences of ageism, age-inclusivity, and their resilience towards ageism.

 

This study involved completing background questions, as well as an interview either through Zoom or over the phone that took 60 minutes. 

The recruitment phase of this study has now ended. We are focusing on analyzing the data. Check back soon to learn about the study's results!

Étude de la résilience et de la résistance des personnes d'âge moyen (MARRS) : Une étude qualitative de l’influence sur les adultes d'âge moyen de l’âgisme et de l'inclusion

Le milieu de la vie – que l’on définit généralement comme les années entre 45 et 64 ans – a été largement négligé dans la recherche sur le développement de la durée de vie. L'objectif de cette étude était de comprendre les idées que l'on se fait de cette étape de la vie du point de vue de la durée de vie (c'est-à-dire les résidents de la Saskatchewan de 25 à 84 ans), et de recueillir les expériences de ces adultes en matière d’âgisme, d’inclusion et de résilience face à la discrimination fondée sur l’âge.

Lors de cette étude, les participants ont répondu à quelques questions d’ordre général, puis ils/elles nous ont rencontré par Zoom ou au téléphone pour un entretien individuel d’environ 60 minutes. 

L'étape de recrutement des participants a terminé. Nous nous concentrons présentement sur l'analyse des données. Veuillez retourner au site pour apprendre davantage sur les résultats de l'étude!

Group for People Living with Chronic Disease in Saskatchewan

Principal Investigator: Kelsey Haczkewicz

We are looking to design a new group for people living with chronic disease in Saskatchewan. This group will focus on providing coping strategies and support that helps people manage their mental health while living with chronic disease. Before we start designing the group, we want to hear from people who are living with chronic disease in Saskatchewan. That’s why we designed this survey. 

Eligible persons will be asked to participate in a 10-minute survey about their preferences for this new group for people living with chronic disease in Saskatchewan. If you choose to participate in the survey, you will have the option to enter your name into a draw for a chance to win 1 of 10 gift cards of $25.

* A chronic disease is any disease that lasts at least one year. Some of these diseases include arthritis, asthma, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetes, epilepsy, heart failure, ischemic heart disease, and stroke.

The recruitment period has ended for this study. Check back soon to read a summary of the results!
