Episode 07 – Understanding social work for the elderly, and researching violence & abuse against older women with Dr Jane Mears.

 

Hello there!

This is episode 7 of the Social Work Discoveries podcast.

In this episode I talk with Associate Professor from Western Sydney University – Dr Jane Mears – all about the role of social work in the context of aged care and how social workers can better highlight the needs of the elderly in Australian society. We discuss Jane’s social work research with older women who have experienced abuse and violence, and how her research has helped to create awareness of this ‘invisible’ cohort of our community.

I hope you find it helpful.

Ben.
