Centre for Ageing Population Studies (CAPS)

The over-arching goals of CAPS are to better understand age-related conditions that impact on well-being and independence in later life, and translate this knowledge to develop and test complex interventions to improve health and well-being and maintain independence for older people. CAPS is at the leading edge of research in primary care for older people, and are a multi-disciplinary group with expertise in intervention development, qualitative research, epidemiology and clinical trials. Public involvement is central to our work, including the co-production of many of our interventions.

We have a broad programme of work; the key themes are:

  • Supporting self management of long term conditions
  • Promoting independence and well-being in later life
  • Dementia and Cognitive Impairment
  • Mental health and well-being in later life
  • Risk factors, risk prediction and timely diagnosis of age-related conditions
  • Identifying and reducing age-related inequalities in access to healthcare
