Understanding the careers of older health workers

Majorie O'Neill

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting abstract


The aim of this research is to understand the career choices of older workers. While there is significant research about retirement, there is a lack of literature and research concerning older worker careers, in particular those who are continuing to work, rather than retire. This research seeks to not only understand the career choices that older workers are making around retirement, but also to expand and modernise theory in the area of late life careers.
