Leader of the project.
The mistreatment of older adults is an issue of interest to researchers worldwide. Moreover, the Chair makes a concerted effort to include the fields of expertise of each one of them.
It is, of course, possible to read the works of these international researchers. Still, these researchers have few opportunities to elaborate on their experiences and share their viewpoints on diverse aspects of this issue.
With the use of a video format, this project also offers the opportunity to quickly familiarize oneself with different research approaches and multiple practices to counter mistreatment recommended throughout the world.
GOAL OF THE PROJECT OR RESEARCH QUESTION:
To present the work of international researchers on the mistreatment of older adults and assess its impact on public policies and practices.
The purpose of the project is to create and put online important interviews with internationally acclaimed researchers.
- Conduct the interview (filming);
- Transcribe the interview;
- Edit the videotaped interview;
- Translate (from French to English or vice versa) and subtitle the video;
- Obtain approval of the final edit by the researcher;
- Put the interview online.
Since 2012, 17 interviews have been filmed, edited, translated, subtitled, and put online.
o this, add an introductory video with Marie Beaulieu, who offers a brief bilingual presentation of the ‘Important Interviews’ section of the Chair’s website.
