BU’s user led research study covered in the Bournemouth Echo

The Bournemouth Echo published a two page spread this week on the Older Carers Research Study. The user led study was conducted by a group of older male carers over the age of 85 in collaboration with the BU PIER partnership (Public Involvement in Education and Research), Bournemouth and Poole’s Carers Centre and the study’s funders: Dorset Healthwatch. The Echo’s article focuses on Jim and his experience of caring for his wife. To read the article, search for Bournemouth Echo carer, and to view the 11 minute film created by the carers and a group of BU Media Production students go to the BU PIER partnership website www.bournemouth.ac.uk\pier and look under ‘our resources’. Feedback and comments welcome.
