Evaluating complex ageing-well interventions using mixed methods approaches: challenges and opportunities
About the Speaker
Dr Louise Lafortune is a Principal Research Associate at Cambridge Public Health, and co-leads of its Lifecourse and Ageing research pillar.
She believes older people should be able to live full, engaged lives in their chosen communities. Her work targets systems, interventions and technologies that help people maintain their independence and quality of life as they age. She also focuses on the prevention and mitigation of frailty in older adults.
Louise is currently funded by NIHR as Principal Investigator (PI) for both the School for Public Health Research (SPHR) and the Social Return on Investment of Age Friendly Communities research programme. She is also Principal researcher in the Population Evidence and Data Science theme for the Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) East of England.
She currently chairs the Aging Longevity and Health (ALH) initiative at the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU), serves on the WHO Technical Advisory Group for Measurement, Monitoring and Evaluation of the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing, and has served on research and policy advisory boards including NICE, the Alzheimer’s Society and Public Health England. Her work in health economics, outcomes research, and evidence synthesis is published in such journals as The Lancet, the BMJ and Nature Neurology.
She holds a Master of Neurosciences (McGill) and a dual PhD in Public Health (Université de Montreal and Université de Paris).
