This five-part series has been written to assist funders, universities, and academics carrying out research in the content of tri-council research policies across the country. It is intended to inform discussion about compensation and provide guidelines for the meaningful involvement of older people, particularly older people from disadvantaged groups. Although this was designed as a series, each part is also a stand-alone document.
