Professor Angela Kydd

Biography Professor Kydd’s clinical background involved nursing older people in acute care and working as a care home manager. Her interest is the oldest old. She has an MSc in gerontology and a PhD in nursing, which focused on the experiences of frail older people living in a care setting. She has written and taught on gerontology and dementia courses and these have ranged from workshops to a master’s programme in later life. She wrote and taught a nurse specialist programme in gerontological nursing which was revised for use by the World Health Organisation. Angela also teaches internationally and has led and partnered four Erasmus Intensive Programmes. She has led several funded projects, one of which involved the creation of bespoke philosophies of care underpinning practice development with staff in nursing homes, one on a seven country project on attitudes to nurses who work with older people and one on teaching student nurses to interview older people on their experiences of health and social care. She has co-edited a gerontology textbook and has contributed to an open access textbook on Ageism. She is a partner of a Horizon 2020 project on Ageism, which employs 15 global Early Stage Researchers to undertake PhDs on aspects of Ageism. She is Director of Studies for two of these phd students who are studying at Robert Gordon University.
