Aim

Appetite change is common in older age but, as it is not routinely assessed, understanding of its causes and effects is limited.  We want to find out more about appetite and appetite change in older age and we would like to invite older adults to join a conversation with us to tell us about their experiences of appetite and how it may affect what they eat.

The AGE research group at Newcastle University is part of a new European consortium: APPETITE. The research being carried out in Newcastle is to support the first phase of the project - to improve our understanding of appetite in older age.

Volunteer Criteria

We would like to invite older adults to take part in our research, this includes those who are over the age of 60 years.

What will I be asked to do?

We are interested in finding out about your appetite. To do this, firstly we are inviting you to fill in a short online questionnaire that will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. You will be asked to provide your details, including name, age and telephone/email address and you will be asked four questions about your appetite. We will analyse the anonymised questionnaire data to describe your level of appetite.

Secondly, you may be invited to take part in a one-to-one interview to explore in-depth your experience of appetite, appetite change and effects on how and what you eat. The interview will last approximately 30-60 minutes.

When and where?

The questionnaire can be completed online anytime until 4th January 2022. 

If you are contacted about taking part in the interview, this will take place online or by phone at a time and date that is convenient for you.

Will I get anything for taking part?

We are currently talking to participants by phone or on online, but if there is an opportunity for face to face meetings later in the project, all expenses will be refunded.
