Irish Medical Times Discusses TILDA Comparative Research on Ageing in England, the United States, and Ireland

The Irish Medical Times has published an article highlighting recent TILDA research on the comparability of TILDA findings on physical and cognitive health in older Irish adults with those of similar longitudinal studies in the United States and England. The research was published in a special edition of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society focusing on the design, development and findings of TILDA. Similar health inequalities were observed in all three countries, but Irish over-50s were found to have more in common with their English counterparts than those in the United States in terms of physical and cognitive health.
