As part of the inquiry, the future of ageing working group developed an ethical toolkit, in the form of a series of prompts and questions, as a practical means for translating the ethical values and principles that we argue should underlie ageing-related research and innovation. The aim of the framework is to help all those concerned with the development, conduct, and implementation of research relating to living well in older age to think through the ethical implications of their work.

The interactive toolkit below includes additional prompts and questions for both researchers/research teams and practitioners who work with older adults.
