What is it about?
We decided to examine a global policy recommendation, the UN Principles for Older Persons, from the specific perspective of older adults with a visual impairment, and develop research priorities and directions based on the policy piece.
Why is it important?
The rhetoric of international policy is often diplomatically vague and difficult to translate into relevant directives that can be translated and used in research. However, we need to build links between the relevance of our research and the global priorities of health care. Therefore, exercises like this are important steps in bringing ideas and concepts to practical reality.
