Ageing: the bigger picture
27 November 2023
My name is Dr Emma Short. I am a research associate at Cardiff Metropolitan University and a Consultant Histopathologist in Swansea Bay University Health Board. I am wanting to enquire whether anyone would be interested in joining a working group as a subject-expert as part of our project, the 'Classification and Staging of Age-Related Pathology'. The project seeks to unify current research on the biology of ageing, by developing a comprehensive system for classifying and staging age-related pathology, to complement the WHO’s International Classification of Diseases (ICD).

This Report summarises findings from a Policy Lab that explored the value, feasibility and acceptability of shifting how we view the ageing process. Its goal is to achieve attitudinal change to ageing, by moving away from a narrative of disease and decline towards the idea that ageing is a lifelong process of change.
