Perceptions of older women aged 87-92 about their health needs and health concerns
In 2013 the oldest cohort of the ALSWH (1921-1926) were aged 87-92 years, and represent the survivors of this cohort. We plan to analyse the qualitative comments offered by these women in response to the question is there anything we have missed? to identify what their individual health concerns and/or events were over the previous six months (in two surveys administered) that are not addressed in the standardised items contained within the survey. A mixed methods approach will allow us to link any key themes emerging from the qualitative data with specific characteristics of the women that may offer some new insights about the experiences of this cohort over a year.
