Measuring disability: a secondary data lens perspective - Webinar

07 Dec 2022

We are excited to announce the forthcoming webinar - 'Measuring disability: a secondary data lens perspective - Webinar with Dr. Eirini-Christina Saloniki (University College London). 

When: Wednesday 7th December, 11-12:00

Almost everyone will experience some form of disability during their life (WHO, 2021). In the UK, over 14 million people live with a disability, and this is likely to increase due to a rise in chronic health conditions and population ageing, among others.
Disability is a complex, multifaceted and "evolving" term with several definitions, guided by the context, purpose and data availability (Jones and Saloniki, 2021). There is no correct or perfect definition, but it is usually informed by a conceptual model (e.g. social, medical, biopsychosocial) or legislation (e.g. UK Equality Act in 2010).
There have been recent efforts to ‘harmonise’ disability questions across UK surveys. However, data collection on disability remains inconsistent across surveys and/or over time, with implications for research in this area.
Dr. Eirini-Christina Saloniki explores these issues in this webinar, aimed at health and care professionals, applied health and care researchers, and anyone with an interest in the surveys and measures of disability. For further information and registration details, please click here.
