Abstract
Stirling University has partnered with Generation Scotland to advance Scotland’s first comprehensive longitudinal study of ageing. COVID-19 Impact and Recovery Survey is a new Healthy AGeing in Scotland (HAGIS) study exploring how COVID-19 fear may impact social, health and economic recovery from the pandemic in people aged 50+. We have recruited a group of volunteer co-researchers aged 50+ who have co-produced materials for the survey, survey questions, and a co-researcher page on the new website: https://www.hagis.scot Opportunities and challenges: To support team cohesion and engagement we have used a mix of online meeting rooms, phone calls and emails. The plan was to start with a virtual group and then, as restrictions relax, move to more in-person activities but this has not yet been possible. Learning for the LPS community: Co-researchers have been particularly valuable in identifying key areas of concern, shaping survey questions, and writing recruitment scripts. Co-researchers report benefits with the online group providing support and shared experiences throughout the pandemic. The value of co-production with people that reflect a cohort of interest should not be underestimated and should be built-in to new longitudinal studies.
