Following its previous success, Middlesex University are running a free online international course for the third time starting 13 May 2019. People are invited to register online via Future Learn via the link below. Please be so kind as to circulate this e mail as much as possible via your networks and your partner’s circulation lists – everybody is welcome to join. We have had a good engagement from professionals, the public, people with personal experience, researchers and policy makers from all over the world in our last 2 runs and the feedback has been really positive. People in later life face specific issues in relation to problematic substance use. Demography and a growing ageing population make understanding these ever more important. But people’s problems in later life tend to be more invisible, both in care services and in substance use services. This online course brings these issues together from a health, social care, informal carer and public health point of view. It draws on international perspectives from experts in the UK, New Zealand, Australia and the USA, to compare and share knowledge, skills and best practice with the community. Topics covered: • Introduction to the issues concerning problematic substance use in later life, context, causes, recognition. • Comparison and sharing of knowledge, skills and expertise across different disciplines as well as internationally. • Identifying interventions and best practices to tackle the issues and promote health and wellbeing in ageing populations. • Developing a community of practice and networking on the issues.
