This PhD research affects us all. Personal Preparedness Plans (PPP) for Healthy Ageing.

by Pamela in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom

I have been awarded my PhD place to research “Investigating the feasibility of bio/psycho/socio/economic Personal Preparedness Plans for healthy ageing - (PPP).” at the University  of Lincoln. I have accepted this PhD place and I start in May 2024.

These 4 subject areas (biological/psychological/sociological/economical) are all interlinked and interdependent. What I have already found is that people/organisations/populations have not included the myriad various types of economics e.g.   health economics, time economies, behavioural economies, cost economies or metabolic economies. All these types of economies are cross influenced by the  four paradigm subjects. My goals are to survey participants in different age groups to find out why PPP have not been created by people and to create a template for people to use. The template can be edited and updated by individuals as their lifespan progresses. Donators will be able to get their copyright template first before the main public should they so wish.. 

An initial survey has already been done and shows that PPP are long overdue. This PhD will bring new knowledge to people enabling them to better achieve their healthy ageing.  I started my career as a nurse and have seen firsthand that PPP are badly needed. My background in healthcare and connected education has provided me with knowledge and experience in a very wide field of healthcare. 

This PhD project will be breaking new ground in being able to encourage, support and provide opportunities for people to take more control and responsibility over their healthy ageing. 

This Doctorate will mean roughly £15k Supervisor costs.  There will be Thesis writing up costs of £800.  Materials, books, survey software and data collection programmes approximately £1,677.   I hope you will be willing to support my endeavour with even the smallest of donations towards my PhD costs.     Contingency £500.  Total  = £17.977.   This is a not for profit endeavour.

Tax is due on all donations resulting in a GRAND TAXABLE TOTAL of approximately - £21,572 to finance.

If  I am fortunate enough to over achieve £21,572, the plan is to take PPP to wider audiences in the UK.

I sincerely hope you can support me in my PhD endeavour which ultimately aims to benefit the general public.  If you are not able to support me at this time, would you be able to pass on my story to others please?

Thank you.

With sincere good wishes - Pamela
