Social prescribing: end of study event
September 20, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
An interdisciplinary team of researchers has been funded by the UKRI Arts and Humanities Research Council to carry out a study to address the following question: Cultural institutions as social prescribing venues to improve older people’s well-being in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic: What works, for whom, in what circumstances and why? The 12-month project consists of a literature review, interviews with older people and with cultural sector staff, and a questionnaire that has been completed by social prescribing link workers.
You are warmly invited to join the team as they launch their latest research findings on how cultural spaces can support the health and wellbeing of older people. It will be an opportunity to listen to older people talk about the importance these cultural spaces have in their lives and hear from cultural sector staff, link workers and researchers on how best we can create places of wellbeing ready for social prescribing.
The event will be delivered by researchers from the University of Oxford’s Centre for Evidence Based Medicine and practitioners from the Oxford University’s Gardens, Libraries and Museums (GLAM). The findings have been developed by a project team from the University of Oxford, University College London (UCL) and the University of Plymouth, in collaboration with older people, national and international cultural organisations, researchers and social prescribers.
