Issues in ageing for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people:
In conversation with Mark Hughes
Mark Hughes speaks about his research on the issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people who are ageing.
Mark Hughes is an Associate Professor in Social Work at Southern Cross University. He has worked in health, aged care and mental health settings in both Australia and the UK. He has also worked as a social work academic at the University of Queensland, the University of New South Wales, and Goldsmiths College, University of London.
Mark's research and practice interests centre on ageing and the delivery of health and aged care services to older people. He has completed research projects on conflict and violence in care-giving relationships involving older people, dementia and care-giving, older people's transitions through health and community care systems, and educational initiatives to facilitate reflective practice with older people. In addition to work on ageing, Mark has also published more broadly on social work and social work education.
He is currently engaged in a program of research on ageing in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) communities, which has involved projects on sexual identity expression in health and aged care, lesbian and gay people's experiences and expectations in accessing services, and the care networks of older LGBTI people.
Mark is co-author of six books, including Organisations and Management in Social Work (with Michael Wearing) and Older People, Ageing and Social Work (with Karen Heycox), as well as a range of journal publications.
