VOICE Study

We are conducting a research study which will explore how people’s careers affect their health and wellbeing later on in life. We aim to see if military service may have a different impact on health and wellbeing in later life or not.

The study will include military veterans and non-veterans and we also hope to interview a close companion (e.g. spouse, child, close friend) of each participant for their views on the topic. If we can identify the potential effects of occupation later in life, then future employers will be able to potentially adapt working practices to take account of how people fare when they are aged over 65 years of age.

 

We are inviting those who are over the age of 65 and either served in the UK armed forces (for longer than 5 years) or served in a non-military profession (for longer than 5 years) to take part. Participants and close companions will be asked to complete some brief questionnaires and take part in an interview with one of our researchers.

Paddy and I have already done it. We got £40 of shopping vouchers for our trouble. It takes a couple of hours. You are sent some questionaires before the meeting. They really need husband and wives to do it who have been together a long time so the wife can answer questions about changes she may have seen in you from before any conflict you may have been in and afterwards. You are interviewed in your own home separately and each interview lasts about an hour.

This is still ongoing.  They still need volunteers, if you have not yet taken part.  Please consider it.  You get shopping vouchers :rolleyes:
